9  I think the theory that best explains my criminal is Differential-Association theory. Due to his role as the leader of a crime family, he had to get their somehow. He had to start low on the “food chain” and work his way up to the top. By working his way up, he ended up spending time with other criminals, or members of his crime family. By spending time with other criminals he learned through them, which is differential-association theory. Differential-Association theory is a theory about deviance that says people’s behavior is determined by the company they keep. Within this theory, there are four conditions. The first one is Criminal behavior is learned in interactions with others. The second one is Learning criminal behavior allows acquiring: both criminal techniques and the motives that drive it. The third condition is Someone is likely to become a criminal if that person’s values and the values of the individuals who have the greatest influence over him/her strongly support criminal activities rather than noncriminal. The fourth and final condition is A person’s criminal associations can vary in certain respects such as: frequency, length, and intensity of these contacts.
