Assessment of sociolegal judgment of offenders
Am J Psychiatry 1976;133:973-975.
text A A A

While working with young male offenders the authors developed a scale to assess sociolegal judgment, i.e., the ability to evaluate the possible social and legal consequences of various choices of action in a given situation. They found that some inmates had committed crimes because of poor sociolegal judgment, whereas others understood the consequences of their actions but chose to act illegally despite this knowledge.
