Reflect on the assigned readings for the week. Identify what you thought was the most important concept(s), method(s), term(s), and/or any other thing that you felt was worthy of your understanding.
Also, provide a graduate-level response to each of the following questions:

[Your initial post should be based upon the assigned reading for the week, so the textbook should be a source listed in your reference section and cited within the body of the text. Other sources are not required but feel free to use them if they aid in your discussion].
[Your initial post should be at least 450+ words and in APA format (including Times New Roman with font size 12 and double spaced). Post the actual body of your paper in the discussion thread then attach a Word version of the paper for APA review]
Question I – At the end of a long day, Sabrina, a cashier for a supermarket is counting the paper money. One of the bills falls from the cash register into the bottom of Sabrina’s purse. What elements of embezzlement are present in this situation? Should Sabrina be convicted of embezzlement? Why or why not?
Question II – Bobby Bigmouth is sued for slander by his boss. Bobby argues that he cannot be sued for slander because he did not publish any statement. He argues that his alleged slanderous comment was not published because he just made the comment to a co-worker about his boss rather than making that statement to a reporter to be published. Is Bobby’s argument correct?
Question III – During an episode of Sports Center, one of the anchors misread the teleprompter and said LeBron James was closing his school for at risk youth. In reality, LeBron James was expanding his school. This statement by the anchor was a slip of the tongue and corrected in the next episode. Would LeBron’s defamation suit against Sports Center and the anchor be successful? Why or why not?
