Summary: Why do individuals exposed to the same environment turn out so differently, with some engaging in crime and others abiding by societal rules and norms? Why are males involved in violent crime more often than females? And why do the precursors of serious pathological behavior typically emerge in childhood?Edition/Copyright: 08
Stephen G. Tibbetts is an associate professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at California State University, San Bernardino. He earned his undergraduate degree in criminology and law at University of Florida, and his Masters and Doctorate degrees at University of Maryland, College Park. For more than a decade, he worked as an Officer of the Court (Juvenile) in both Washington County, Tennessee, and then for San Bernardino County, California, in which he provided recommendations for disposing numerous juvenile court cases. He has published more than 30 scholarly publications in scientific journals (including Criminology and Justice Quarterly), as well as several books, all examining various topics regarding criminal offending or policies to reduce such behavior. His recent research interests include developmental and biosocial factors in predicting offending, particularly factors that affect brain function, as well as testing traditional theoretical models of criminal offending and gang intervention/prevention strategies. His most recent book is a co-edited anthology, American Youth Gangs at the Millennium (Waveland Press, 2005), which was given a Choice award by the American Library Association as an Outstanding Academic Title.
