Evaluate whether developmental risk factors and       correlates of criminal behavior influence criminal behavior

For your Final Project, you will select three case studies from the given set. Each case scenario represents a different type of offender  (e.g., mentally disordered offender, sex offender, violent offender, family violence  offender, female offender, white-collar criminal, cybercriminal, or terrorist).
For each case, you will:

  1. Apply a specific theoretical approach to the criminal       behaviors displayed in each case.
  2. Determine if the crime or crimes presented would be categorized       as expressive or instrumental. Explain your rationale.
  3. Evaluate whether developmental risk factors and       correlates of criminal behavior influence criminal behavior. Evaluate       whether the offender in each case scenario is a criminal.
    Note: Although assessment is an       integral step in the tasks you complete in this Final Project, for the       purposes of this course and Final Project, you will not assess the       offenders in the case scenarios you select.

Your Final Project may be presented via one of the following  options:

  • A 10- to 12-page (not       including references, title page, or abstract), double-spaced,       APA-formatted paper.
  • attachment
