Once the image has been created, you can mount the dd image safely using the following command
mount -o ro, loop, noatime /home/images/case1-hdc1-c1-badguy /mnt/case1-hdc1

Here’s more detail on how to do that

# losetup /dev/loop0 /path/to/diskimage
# fdisk -l /dev/loop0
(example)
Disk /dev/sdb: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 1 1044 8385898 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/sdb2 1045 19457 147902422 83 Linux

suppose you want to mount the partition on sdb2, the offset for that
would be 8225280 * 1045 = 8595417600.

detach the disk image
# losetup -d /dev/loop0
and setup the loop for the partiion
# losetup -o8595417600 /dev/loop0 /path/to/diskimage
and mount it
# mount -t fstype /dev/loop0 /path/to/mountdir
