Write a 500-750-word essay in which you select an individual from the list of infamous criminal offenders (in the Topic 7 documents), and then choose a theory discussed in this course that best explains their offending.
Research information about their upbringing, education, family life, or other biological or lifestyle characteristics and construct an argument as to why your selected theory best explains the crimes this individual committed. Provide specific examples.
Also, explain how motivations, deviance, and abnormal behaviors from the criminal’s past may have led to, or been a warning sign of, the criminal actions they eventually engaged in.
