Request Description

The Jukes family and the Kallikak family have been subjects of studies
pertaining to the nature versus nurture issue and crime. Current studies have
been collected that show that juveniles who are raised in families where family
members have been incarcerated have an increased likelihood of following the
same path. Are the characteristics of offenders carried down through families?
Is it nature or nurture? Look at these studies, and describe the
characteristics. Try to explain both sides of the issue (both nature and
nurture) that bring out the characteristics of people who are more likely to go
to jail.
