Perhaps the most frequently documented conclusion about delinquent behaviour is that most offenses are committed with other rather than by persons acting alone. Offending with others often is characterised as group offending, implying either that members act together as a unit or that individual offending is organized by group affiliation. Research also links criminal co-offending to greater levels of violence along with increased risks for recidivism and more prolonged criminal careers and victimization. But despite considerable documentation of co-offending in delinquent behaviour, little about co-offending is explained by theories of delinquency. In this paper, the author attempts to draw some of the theoretical implications that findings on co-offending have for theories of delinquency and criminality. This paper will present how approaches to studying co-offending could be studied from various theoretical perspectives. Ideas such as routine activities, strain, social learning, differential association and crime pattern theories will be presented.
Keywords: co-offending, theories, juvenile offenders.
