Abstract

             This paper analyzes the murder of Nick Markowitz using the rational choice theory of criminology. This paper includes a biography of Jesse James Hollywood and a detailed description of rational choice theory. In using rational choice theory I analyze the failures of the criminal justice system and Hollywood's attorney regarding providing Hollywood access to information that could have potentially lead to a decision (rational choice) which could have prevented the murder.
