definition of what is deviant based upon your readings and research (do not provide Webster or Wikipedia dictionary for the definition). Next, make the distinction between “deviance” and “crime”. Provide an example of something that is considered deviant behavior and NOT criminal behavior OR something that is criminal behavior but NOT deviant behavior. Provide a rationale to support your response.
research one (1) criminal case from your state in which authorities found the defendant to be engaging in deviant behavior. Next, identify the type of deviant behavior in which the defendant was engaged, and specify at least one characteristic of the defendant’s behavior that likely led the authorities to consider his or her actions deviant. Justify your position.
