You have learned about criminological theoretical perspectives from our text and in our discussions. Select a recent or historical crime and apply theory to the crime, victim, or criminal. Summarize the crime and then using the theories as a framework, analyze all aspects of the crime. I’m interested in your application of theory than the accuracy of your analysis of the problem itself. You should make use of outside research materials and additional readings as well as your textbook. In addition, please make sure you are using proper citations and that you include a reference page formatted in APA style.
