Do you think that the fellow inmate’s advice was correct in saying that Libby could not be retried for the murder of her husband who faked his death and for which she was originally tried and convicted

You may need to refer to the United States Constitution and some additional resources about double jeopardy. How many of you have seen Double Jeopardy with Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Jones?

I have seen it once and thought it was a good movie. If you haven’t seen it or need to review the storyline, please feel free to borrow it from a library, rent it, etc. You may also use Wikipedia to look up the 1999 movie called Double Jeopardy and read the plot, especially the first three paragraphs. Libby Parsons has been tried and convicted for murdering her husband, Nick. As it turns out, Nick’s body was never found and he really faked his death. A fellow inmate tells Libby that if she ever gets parole, she could kill Nick with impunity because of the Double Jeopardy clause in the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
