Mr. Abbadi Case Summary

Amazing Essays
Mr. Abbadi presented to the evaluation session poorly groomed in a jail-issued jumpsuit. Hygiene and grooming were inadequate as a malodorous scent emanated from his body during the interview. Eye contact was variable. At times, he stared intensely at this evaluator. Other times, Mr. Abbadi looked at the ceiling or behind his back while talking. No gross physical impairment was observed. Numerous tattoos appeared on his arms and neck. Large print letters were tattooed on each of his forearms. Across his right arm was the word ‘loyalty’ in large block letters. His left forearm featured similar lettering and the word, “respect.” He also had a tattoo of the word, “angel” on his neck. This evaluator asked the defendant the meaning behind his tattoos to which Mr. Abbadi looked confused and responded, “What tattoos?”

    When it comes to relationships, Holden is a paradox in creating them. He often finds himself ostracizing the people surrounding him, believing that they are “phony” and spurious.
