UNCC Criminologist Wins FBI Scholarship

(2/12/08) The Internet is a haven for criminals and UNC-Charlotte criminologist Thomas Holt is developing a reputation for untangling their twisted networks. He recently received a J. Edgar Hoover Memorial Scholarship from the Former Agents of the FBI Foundation. Holt spoke with WFAE's Julie Rose about his efforts to understand what motivates computer hackers, identity thieves and pedophiles.|

Holt plans to use his $2,500 scholarship to pay for translators so he can analyze criminal activity in foreign languages.
