Age of Offenders The graph shows the percentage of arrests by age group per one thousand juveniles arrested. It shows that as people get older they are at least more likely to be arrested for committing a crime. Because the chart shows an increase in the number of arrests there must be a correlation between the number of people arrested and the amount of crime committed. The probability of charged with a crime increases with age, this is due to the pressure placed on juveniles by their peers as they age.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
