Exiting Deviancy When leaving a deviant career, there are three main identified ways: phasing out – leaving the career slowly, exiting certain parts and replacing them with legitimate activities. (Think of a drug dealer who gets a part-time straight job and still sells some, and then moves into a full-time straight job as an example). aging out – (think of a gang member who gets too old to be in the gang anymore and the younger members push him/her out). shifting within the same deviant behavior to a new role (see next slides on the ‘professional ex’ as an example)

What happens to gang members? 1. Some people stay in the gang. 2. Some drop out to pursue various illegal activities on their own. 3. Some move on to other social clubs (Irish social clubs, organized crime). 4. Individuals move to become involved with smaller “crews” where they can make more money. 5. Some will be imprisoned.
