People commit crimes due to varied reasons. Some are forced to do illegal acts due to poverty and as a result of drug abuse while the others do it for power. And while some people make an effort not to do the crime again, there are others who keep repeating the illegal act.
The experts point out that repeat offending stems from two factors. Firstly, they involve impulsive individuals or those with weak social attachments to other people. Secondly, people exposed to more crime and disorder tend to take advantage of these opportunities.
Why Repeat Offending Continues
It is said that offenders learn by doing the act and the lessons they learn are often what prompts them to commit the act again and attack the same target. When they succeed in one instance, they may believe they can succeed once again with similar targets.
