Young Persons' Conceptions of Criminal Events.
Brown, Laurence B.; Lalljee, Mansur
Journal of Moral Education, v10 n3 p165-72 May 1981
Australian secondary students were asked to list five crimes they had heard of, their source of information, and their views on appropriate punishment. A systematic relationship was found between these three elements. Justifications made for mitigating circumstances were analyzed for type of crime and by attribution theories. (Author/SJL)
