Unit 3 Assignment: Criminological Perspectives

First, describe the core arguments of each of the following criminological perspectives:
- Trait (biological/psychological)

- Classical/Choice (deterrence)
Second, support an argument for which of the two sentencing models (determinate or indeterminate) you feel is most likely to be effective at addressing crime from each of the three perspectives.
