her victimization if the person maintains a lifestyle that contributes to the

Classical Criminology and rational choice theory assume that

desert theory and how does it relate to the crime prevention policy of

Biological & psychological theories (graded)

The American Psychiatric Association believes a person should not
be held legally responsible for a crime if his or her behavior meets the
following standard developed by legal expert Richard Bonnie: “A person
charged with a criminal offense should be found not guilty by reason of
insanity if it is shown that as a result of mental disease or mental
retardation he was unable to appreciate the wrongfulness of his conduct at the
time of the offense.” As used in this standard, the terms mental diseaseandmental retardationinclude only those severely
abnormal mental conditions that grossly and demonstrably impair a person’s
perception or understanding of reality and that are not attributable primarily
to the voluntary ingestion of alcohol or other psychoactive substances. As a
criminologist with expertise on trait theories of crime, do you agree with this
standard? What modifications, if any, might you make to include other
categories of offenders who are not excused by this definition? (Relate to

not necessarily involve a victim. To start our discussion let’s address the
question: are public disorder crimes victimless crimes? (Relate to TCO#5)
