CJ Undergraduate student, Shavon Trice, and Dr. James McCafferty present a poster at the recent ASC Conference

On November 21, 2013, undergraduate criminal justice major Shavon Trice and Assistant Professor Dr. James McCafferty presented a research poster titled "Does the Victim-Offender Relationship Influence Victims’ Emotional and Physical Reaction to Identity Theft?" at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology.  This research revealed that victims of identity theft that have a personal relationship with their offender, experience negative health outcomes at a significantly greater rate than victims of identity theft that do not know their offender.  Shavon was able to attend the meeting thanks to an Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities funding award from the Center for Teaching and Learning (CETL).
