Both groups faced high risks of ASPO, officially recorded crime and alcohol abuse/ dependence, and lower risks of major depressive disorders than subjects with a primary diagnosis of depression. Risks for adult depression might arise in a variety of ways. Continuities from earlier mixed disorders may provide one route, though questionnaire-based data suggest that this is unlikely to be the whole story (Rutter, 1991). Antisocial adolescents showed elevated rates of emotional distress in early adulthood, independent of levels of emotional problems in the teens.

Although the genetic component is especially associated with hyperactivity, overactivity or inattention need not necessarily constitute the key susceptibility trait. 2. Neuropsychological Deficits, Cognitive Impairments, and School Achievements Neuropsychological deficits (Moffitt, 1993b) offer a second possibility here. Depressed IQ scores, most marked on measures of verbal skills, have been widely documented among both juvenile and adult offenders (Hirschi & Hindelang, 1977; Wilson & Herrnstein, 1985), and modest but consistent longitudinal associations have been reported between early childhood verbal skills and criminality in adult life (Stattin & KlackenbergLarssen, 1993).

Some severe antisocial behaviors are known to develop in the context of major mental disorders, or in response to trauma; new onset of pervasive antisocial behavior in adulthood may predominantly reflect influences of this kind (Hodgins, 1993). In relation to offending, alcohol- and drugrelated crime may also play an important part (Kaplan, 1995), and feminist sociologists have argued for some routes into adult crime particular to women, reflecting rational responses to severe environmental pressures or demands (Daly, 1993; Heidensohn, 1994).
