It is important to further explore crimes that are drug related in order to see the root causes. Some people are likely to generalize about the causes of drug related crimes and say that they are simply related to people who do not do any good for our society. However, in certain instances drugs can be used as a source of income for people and they commit crimes in order to facilitate that goal (Nurco, 1998). These people have no way out of their drug lives and therefore may not necessarily choose this life style but are brought up into it. Similarly the background of the people who become involved in drug usage which could result in crime are predisposed to drug related behavior early on in their households (Winfree et.
The reason why they pick a certain M.O is because they work for them. Like a serial rapist might sit in a dark parking lot and escort an unsuspected victim to their car at gun point and then rape them (Mauro, 2014). The M.O may change over time because they found another method that might work better for them. Or they suffered set back and must find a new way that works for them (Mauro, 2014). Signature Signature is a different aspect.
(p.173). People who do crime sometimes might feel guilty especially if it is their first offense. Chronic offenders might not feel guilty for the crimes they do because they have learned to control the feeling of guilt. Differential Association Theory Differential association theory is one of the social learning theories that was thought up by a social learning theorist. Siegel said (2011) "One of the most prominent social learning theories is Edwin H. Sutherland's differential association theory."(p.173).
When a police detective begins to investigate a crime they must try to determine why the crime was committed, which will in turn help them develop a potential suspect. Often we see that crime is committed by strangers so the connection will be difficult to make. However, once a suspect is identified and arrested the detective must prepare for court and part of that preparation is determining why the suspect chose to commit the crime. Genetics is one reason that people may choose to violate the law. During his research Adrian Raine identified one potential gene that when altered could cause a person to become antisocial and commit crimes (Bartol & Bartol, 2014, Pg.
Women can experience symptoms of PTSD after being raped. Rape is crime where the act in itself is awful, but also dealing with it after is very painful as well. If our society were more knowledgeable about rape maybe it wouldn’t happen as much. Knowing the difference between the different characteristics of a serial rapist versus a single victim rapist could potentially help women or men identify their attacker, if they know what to look for. This may be more of a struggle for if the attacker is a stranger or a one-time offender, but if women are able to give details about their attack, this could help the criminal justice system find these criminals after the fact.
The authors argue that without the teaching of these skills in the facility, sexual offenders will find it challenging to reintegrate into the community which could lead to offence relapse. This chapter was useful in identifying key skills that sex offenders must obtain before being released into the community to heighten the chances of success and for that reason it could assist me in my role as a probation and parole officer in my scenario (nine).

Defense attorneys were able to stress other factors regarding his personality, age and any other special circumstances. This tactic may end save the defendant from the death penalty. (Cassel- Strategy behind raising a weak insanity defense in the Malvo case). A second reason to raise insanity defense is the social or professional situation of the defendant. Some crimes might be horrible that have effect on the family members of the defendant for ages.
Where the victim is given support and services to assist in the healing and coping mechanisms to assist them deal with the criminal justice. What is secondary victimisation? Wemmers (2013), describes secondary victimisation as intensifying the victims distress, by demonstrating an insensitive reaction, by blaming the victim for inviting the incident. White and Perrone (2015), states the secondary victimisation is the act of blaming the victim of a crime, as opposed to blaming the perpetrator of the said crime. This is especially true when it comes to rape cases, when the victim is said to be asking for it by how the victim was dressed or the victim was known to the perpetrator, or the victim was drunk and cannot remember.
This is one of the way that investigation can impact our community. Let’s not forget that the CSI Effect and the CSI education effect are two different things. The CSI education effect is known as the concern that when criminals or potential criminals watch these shows they learn how to get away with crimes. My article says that they “...asked convicted criminals about the usefulness of covering up a crime…” and they also asked fans of crime shows if they thought the show could help them get away with a crime. Their ultimate experiment was taking subjects to a mock crime scene and giving them the task of trying to clean it up based on their knowledge from the show.
