Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Final Case Study


Final Case Study

Explore, in depth, one well-known criminal case. You may select your own case, or select from one of the following: Jeffery McDonald, Andrea Yates, Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Aileen Wournos, John Wayne Gacy, Philip Markoff (the Craigslist killer), Scott Peterson, Anthony Sowell, or Dennis Rader (BTK strangler). Your case study should focus on the following:

  1. Summarize the case, including a description of the      offense(s), the investigation, and the outcome (such as the trial and      sentencing).
  2. Analyze the psychological history or path that took the      criminal to commit his or her crime(s). Describe the psychological,      behavioral, environmental, and cognitive factors that you believe led to      the offender’s criminality. Consider the various theories we have      discussed in class including the psychoanalytic/psychodynamic theory, the      behaviorist/social learning theory, the cognitive/social cognitive theory,      and the humanist and interactionist theories, and provide examples. The      goal here is to provide an analysis of the psychological history or path      that took the criminal to commit his or her crime(s). Explain the impact      of social, psychological, and biological theories of aggression on your      chosen criminal’s behavior.
  3. Describe the crime typology. Did the offender have a      personality disorder that might have played a role in the criminal      behavior? If so, explain and provide examples and supporting references.      Discuss the laws that are in place for protecting individuals with mental      disorders.
  4. Describe whether your case study was a homicide      offender or sexual offender. Discuss the typology (i.e., single murderer,      serial murderer, spree murderer, mass murderer, child molester, or      rapist).
  5. If applicable, discuss whether your offender was given      a competence to stand trial evaluation, or was found to be not guilty by      reason of insanity. Examine the ethical issues concerning evaluation and      treatment of competence to stand trial and not guilty by reason of      insanity cases.
  6. Discuss the ethical issues surrounding the case.
  7. Support the outcome of the case with your analysis or      provide support of the alternative.

 The paper must be eight to ten pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use five to eight scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library, other than the textbook, to support your claims. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
