Each week, you will be provided the name of a well-known individual who has been accused of or found guilty of engaging in deviant/criminal behavior.

Each week, you will be provided the name of a well-known individual who has been accused of or found guilty of engaging in deviant/criminal behavior. The purpose of the case study is to provide you a chance to research and examine this individual’s past deviant/criminal behavior to see how and where forensic psychology might have been involved, what might have been determined, and how their case might be handled differently today. Your goal is not to determine guilt or innocence (nor competence/incompetence to stand trial), but rather to understand where/why/when a forensic psychologist might have been involved, what assessments might have used (and why), where the person might have gone to get treatment, etc. Ultimately, this assignment will help you to see where, when, and how forensic psychology can/will/should be used in the criminal justice system.
