Narrator: What you are about to see n actual interview between a police detective and a suspect accused of having sexual contact with an eight year old female. The suspect was a trusted friend of the family and supposedly touched the child on her private parts while her sisters were present in the room and her parents were away from the residence. All three children have been clinically diagnosed with numerous personality disorders and are regularly medicated. Pay close attention to how the detective asks his questions. More particularly, listen to what the suspect says, what he doesn’t say, and what he offers to the detective that was not known previously. Following the recording, review your notes and determine how this suspect might fit in to any one of the many typologies we are studying in class.
Please remember that your written assignments should reflect graduate level work. A few of you might lose some points regarding very simple grammatical errors. A few examples include: APA STYLE 1200 words WITH AN ABSTRACT
1. Do not use contractions.
2. Indent your paragraphs.
3. Do not cite Wikipedia, dictionaries or encyclopedias.
4. Website citations must be APA formatted.

I’ve also noticed that some students cite journals as websites from search engines like EBSCO:
