She says that he forced her to participate, so she is only charged with manslaughter instead of murder.

Cultural References

Movie Karla (2006) Based on real events, Paul Bernardo and his wife, Karla Homolka, kidnap, sexually abuse, and murder three young girls. Theory Karla Homolka fits best under the Differential Association Theory, but not exactly. She also fits under Social Control Theory. Like the class example, Jill, Karla had many things that should have kept her from crime. She was well liked and from a well-off family. For Differential Association, she sort of fits because she is influenced by her husband, Paul Bernardo. The reason I dont put her completely under that theory is because it was not a learned mentality or behavior from him; she had the psychotic thoughts before she had met him. They encouraged each others thoughts and behaviors, and strongly supported each others criminal actions.
