A Test of the Validity of Delinquency Syndrome Construct in a Homogeneous Sample.
Benda, Brent B.; Corwyn, Robert Flynn
Journal of Adolescence, v23 n4 p497-511 Aug 2000
Examines if the delinquency syndrome argument has validity in a sample of religious youths, by testing whether the same basic theoretical models explained crime and drug use. Results find that all theoretical factors investigated are correlated significantly with both crime and use of drugs; however, some of these factors are differentially related to those two forms of delinquency.
