The inaugural edition of Christus Cultura: The Journal of Christianity in the Social Sciences was published in April 2019, and an article of mine was published in the inaugural edition. The title of my article is “Labeling Theories and Sex Offender Registries: The 21st Century Scarlet Letter.”
I recently published a collection of E-Books via Amazon’s “Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP).” Each is part of a collection of graduate level academic research papers that I have completed during my Master’s and Ph.D. coursework in criminal justice and forensic psychology. All are currently available on Amazon’s website: http://www.amazon.com. If you have an active membership in Amazon’s “Kindle Unlimited,” you can read each of these for free. Each of these books are also available for purchase as an E-Book for a modest price.
Here are the titles, as well as a brief description, of each E-Book:

November 14, 2018, was the 50th anniversary of the first-degree murder conviction of Gein for the murder of Bernice Worden. Three criminological explanations are offered as possible theoretical explanations for Gein’s deviant sexual offending.

This is a forensic assessment of the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden, based upon a comprehensive review and analysis of available criminal event details and crime scene evidence, the criminal investigative methods utilized at the time in the original criminal investigation of both murders, and victimology. An evidence-based behavioral analysis of the most likely perpetrator of the murders of Andrew and Abby Borden in their Fall River, Massachusetts home on August 4, 1892, is also provided.

A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: South Africa
Although the United States established a consulate in Cape Town, South Africa in 1799, the diplomatic relationship between the United States and South Africa has been strained at times, particularly during the apartheid era of South Africa. An in-depth review and analysis of the country of South Africa and its criminal justice system is provided.
A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: “All Aboard!” – An Analysis of Crime on an Amtrak Train
This academic assignment required that I research, analyze, and provide a credible risk assessment of a specific place for its anticipated risk for criminal activity, and then also provide a reasonable solution for the anticipated criminal activity in that place. This book provides a succinct review and analysis of my research as a paying passenger onboard the “Capitol Limited,” an Amtrak train that begins its cross country travels from Chicago’s Union Station, and concludes its journey in Washington, D.C.’s Union Station.
A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: Cyber Espionage
Espionage is generally considered to be the world’s “second oldest profession,” with prostitution claiming top honors. Cyber espionage is the 21st century update of the world’s second oldest profession. This is an in-depth review of cyber espionage as a transnational crime, and an evidence-based review of the theoretical relevancy of Cohen and Felson’s Routine Activity Theory (1979) to cyber espionage as a criminal offense.
A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: Violence Risk Assessments
This research paper provides a succinct overview of essential definitions of violence and violence risk assessments, explanations of the five commonly used violence risk assessments, and the six essential questions that every clinician should consider in risk assessments of mentally ill criminal offenders. An overview of the legal significance of the U.S. Supreme Court decision Barefoot v. Estelle (1983) to clinical use of violence risk assessments is also provided.
A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: Contemporary Russian Statecraft: Geopolitical Cybercrime
The Russian Federation, previously recognized as the Soviet Union, experienced a drastic change in its governmental, societal, and economic structure during that country’s transition from a communist economy to a market-based economy after the formalized dissolution of the Soviet Union into a collection of nationalized states in 1991. The Russian Federation utilized members of Russian organized crime syndicates as politically transformed cyber criminals in furtherance of state-sponsored goals. This research paper examined the Russian Federation’s utilization of members of Russian organized crime syndicates as state-sponsored cyber criminals.
A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: Transnational Organized Crime in Australia: The Hells Angels Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs

A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: Egypt Past and Present: Transnational Organized Crime in Egypt
The United States officially recognized Egypt’s national sovereignty in 1922 after Egypt emerged from British governance, and Egypt has been a strategically valuable regional partner for the United States in the Middle East ever since. Although Egypt as a country has much to offer the world, Egypt is still widely considered to be one of the most politically corrupt countries in the world today. My research and analysis focused on the presence of political corruption in contemporary Egypt.
A Collection of Academic Research Papers and Presentations: Japanese Organized Crime in North America: The Yakuza and Drug Trafficking
The United States and Japan formally established diplomatic relations between their respective countries in 1858, and the diplomatic relationship between the United States and Japan has endured despite participation in world conflicts in which the United States and Japan were at times on opposing sides, changes in national leadership, and differing national priorities. My research for this research paper focused on Japan’s criminal justice system.
