Abstract : There have been a number of cases whereby notorious criminals have profited from their crimes, as a result of their gained notoriety. In some cases these criminals are paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to tell their version of the story, giving details of how they committed their crimes for books or movie rights. The purpose of notoriety for profit statutes is to effectively prevent a notorious criminal from receiving such financial renumeration and help compensate the victims of their crimes. This thesis is organized into four parts. Chapter I, discusses the problem, the purpose of the study, limitations of the study, methodology, and definition of terms. Chapter II contains a review of the literature, including books, periodicals, newspaper articles, magazine articles, and government documents. Chapter III discusses all notoriety for profit statutes and provides an analysis of each statute to include the provisions of each statute and how they work. In Chapter IV, the conclusion and recommendations for future research are presented and discussed.
