Steketee, M., Junger, M., Junger-Tas, J. (2013). Sex differences in the predictors of juvenile delinquency: Females are more susceptible to poor environments; males are influenced more by low self-control. Journal of Contemporary Criminal Justice, 29, 88– 105. This article investigates whether well-established risk components for delinquency among youths are equally significant for females and males. The article asserts that family disruption, and deviant conduct of peers have more influence on delinquent behavior of young females and lack of self-control is associated with high rates of rimes among male youths. Where family unity is weak and disrupted, most young people engage in recidivism and crimes. Tripodi, Stephen. (2010). The Influence of Social Bonds on Recidivism: A Study of Texas Male Prisoners. Victims and Offenders. 5. 354-370. 10.1080/15564886.2010.509660. In this article, correlates influence of social bonds with recidivism. According to this article, delinquents who become employed or had families would have lower risk ratios than delinquents who did not have families or a job. The article hypothesizes that having a job and family helps offenders to be busy and committed to provide for their families and thus, find relevance in remaining lawfully right than those without jobs or family. Lack of social bonds would lead to idleness and this would trigger wrongdoings

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
