Abstract:

Liu establishes that high school graduation operates as a turning point in late adolescence in redirecting individuals' adult offending trajectories. High school graduation is individually experienced and especially beneficial to those at high risk of dropping out. It also redirects adult offending trajectories by opening opportunities for experiencing adulthood turning point such as employment and romantic relationships. Liu's work provides empirical support for life course criminology and expands our knowledge about turning points by emphasizing that these events may occur at different stage.
