Neither pregnancy or birth complications. inadequate parenting, or SES of the family of origin increased the risk for offending. Among females, none of the factors that were examined were associated with offending. Conclusion: Complications in the neonatal period are associated with offending among men who develop major mental disorders. (Less)
