           MURDER IN ENGLAND AND WALES, 1900–39
    • Authors: Seal L; Neale A.
      Pages: 811 - 829
      Abstract: AbstractThis article examines 10 capital cases of men of colour sentenced to death in England and Wales for intimate murders of white British women during 1900–39. It argues that such cases enable analysis of the prevailing emotional norms of this era and the ways in which these were shaped by race, gender and class. Perceptions of intimate relationships as legitimate or illegitimate—judgments about who should feel what about whom—‘is’ related to understandings of citizenship. In revealing the emotional norms at play in cases of murder, it is possible to illustrate how the criminal justice system governed through emotion.

  • Applying intersectionality to partnerships between women’s organizations
           and the criminal justice system in relation to domestic violence
    • Authors: Day A; Gill A.
      Pages: 830 - 850
      Abstract: AbstractThe challenges facing domestic violence (DV) survivors has become the subject of a growing body of intersectional analysis; this paper presents a new intersectional framework for analysing DV policy and practice. Examining a partnership between women’s sector organizations and the criminal justice system in London, using interviews with professionals from the bodies, the paper offers an intersectional analysis of the implications, positive and negative, for both policy and practice. The complex interplay between women’s sector organizations and the criminal justice system demonstrate how the intersections of gender, class, ‘race’ and immigration status affect the way DV survivors are able to access and benefit from support, concluding that, to operate more effectively, DV support must consider all forms of oppression and violence affecting the lives of all their users.

  • An Examination of Schools, Social Ecological Factors, and Neighbourhood
    • Authors: Wo J; Park J.
      Pages: 851 - 872
      Abstract: AbstractAlthough theories suggest that schools are associated with higher neighbourhood crime rates, it is not clear what particular measures of schools have a crime-producing impact when controlling for a diversity of social-ecological factors. We therefore address this question by performing a block-level analysis of schools and crime in the city of Chicago. Negative binomial regression models reveal that the presence of any school in the focal block is associated with higher violent and property crime rates and that these associations are largely robust to differing measures of schools. We also determine that concentrated disadvantage moderates the effect of school presence in the block on property crime. The implications of these findings for criminology and public policy are discussed.

  • Does Collective Efficacy Matter at the Micro Geographic Level':
           Findings From a Study Of Street Segments
    • Authors: Weisburd D; White C, Wooditch A.
      Pages: 873 - 891
      Abstract: AbstractMany scholars argue that collective efficacy is not relevant to understanding crime at the microgeographic level. We examine variation in collective efficacy across streets with different levels of crime in Baltimore City, MD, and, then, employ multilevel modelling to assess this relationship. We find that people who live in crime hot spots have much lower levels of collective efficacy than people who live in non-hot spot streets and that this relationship persists when controlling for a large number of potential confounders both at the street and community levels. These findings suggest the importance of collective efficacy both in understanding and controlling crime at microgeographic units.

  • Alternative (To) Punishment: Assessing Punishment Experiences in Youth
           Diversion Programmes
    • Authors: Sandøy T.
      Pages: 911 - 929
      Abstract: This study explores the penal character of diversion programmes through the subjective experiences of young drug-law offenders. Specifically, punishment experiences are investigated through qualitative interviews with 24 offenders who were arrested between the ages of 15 and 17. The diverted adolescents described four experiences of punishment attending the programmes: (1) deprivation of time; (2) deprivation of social bonds; (3) deprivation of dignity and (4) deprivation of self. These subjective experiences of punishment, which all reflect the supervisory character of alternative penal sanctioning, differed in severity across programmes, individuals and abstraction levels. Punishment is largely an unspoken aspect of diversionary practices, emphasizing the importance of a subjectivist approach to assessments of penal character.

  • The Penetrative Offence in Section 4 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003:
           Offenders, Victims, and Outcomes After Detection
    • Authors: Weare S.
      Pages: 930 - 948
      Abstract: AbstractExtensive research exists in relation to the Sexual Offences Act 2003, in particular, rape and assault by penetration, the two most serious offences involving non-consensual sexual penetration of the victim. However, the other penetrative offence, causing a person to engage in (penetrative) sexual activity without consent, found in section 4 of the Act, has, to date, been excluded from national statistics and research. This article analyses novel data relating to the section 4 penetrative offence, collected using freedom of information requests from 37 police forces in England and Wales over a 13-year period. The data explore victim and offender demographics and outcomes after detection. The findings challenge understandings around who the victims and perpetrators of penetrative sexual offences are.

  • The Evolution of Corporate Accounts of Scandals From Exposure To
    • Authors: Gottschalk P; Benson M.
      Pages: 949 - 969
      Abstract: AbstractWe extend research on how corporations respond to scandals by examining the evolution of the accounts that are developed by corporate agents after a scandal becomes public. Guided by the theory of accounts and a recently developed perspective on crisis management, we examine how the accounts developed by 12 corporations caught up in highly publicized scandals changed from the time of initial exposure to the issuance of an investigative report. Our analysis shows that denial of wrongdoing in several cases is replaced by admission of wrongdoing and scapegoating, while obfuscation of wrongdoing is replaced by denial or acceptance of responsibility and scapegoating. We conclude with a discussion of the broader managerial and social implications of our analysis and how it furthers our understanding of the ability of corporations to weather serious scandals.

  • A Security Paradox. The Influence Of Governance-Type Organized Crime Over
           The Surrounding Criminal Environment
    • Authors: Aziani A; Favarin S, Campedelli G.
      Pages: 970 - 993
      Abstract: AbstractThis study empirically demonstrates how governance-type organized crime groups (OCGs) operate as an enforcer against volume crimes in the communities they control and argues that their ability to mitigate volume crimes forms an integral component of controlling their territory in the long term. This is because the costs incurred from deterring other crimes are offset by the tangible and intangible revenues that it facilitates. Indeed, combating volume crimes fosters an environment in which OCGs can conduct their activities unfettered by other criminals and law enforcement agencies, safeguard those businesses that pay them protection and curry favour amongst the population. Consequently, the present study verifies the validity of the security governance paradigm by conducting an econometric analysis of 11 different volume crimes.

  • Digital Street Culture Decoded: Why Criminalizing Drill Music is Street
           Illiterate and Counterproductive
    • Authors: Ilan J.
      Pages: 994 - 1013
      Abstract: AbstractAuthorities in the United Kingdom censure ‘drill rap’, the artistic expression of disadvantaged urban youth, citing its connections to serious violence. This is shown to be based on a thin, ‘street-illiterate’ understanding of the genre that ultimately rests on stereotypes of young black men as violent ‘gang’ members. In place of this misreading, a street-literate interpretation of drill is offered from a deep and nuanced analysis of YouTube videos and below the line discussions. It is demonstrated that it is inaccurate and unhelpful to view drill videos as evidence of violent crime or as attempts to glorify or precipitate it. Instead, the stylized videos and violent lyricism are shown to be forms of artistic performance that reveal an ambiguous relationship to criminality. Marginalizing the excluded further, video removals and restrictions on performance are shown to be counterproductive from a crime-reduction perspective. New developments in technology and culture can take shape around existing patterns of criminalization.

  • Responses to wildlife crime in post-colonial times. Who fares best'
    • Authors: Sollund R; Runhovde S.
      Pages: 1014 - 1033
      Abstract: AbstractWildlife crime is an increasing problem worldwide. Based on empirical research, we examine how the criminal justice systems of Brazil, Colombia, Uganda and Norway perceive and respond to such crime, with Norway as the main case study and basis for comparison. While the general assumption is that Northern countries are more ‘developed’ in their response to environmental problems, we argue that Norway, despite its economic resources and international profile as a supporter of environmental protection, is failing to confront illegal trade in—and protection of—endangered species nationally. We propose that these Southern countries have developed more tools in terms of legislation, enforcement, awareness and wildlife protection and that Northern countries have expectations regarding conservation in Southern countries that they themselves neglect.

  • Reporting Racist Hate Crime Victimization to the Police in the United
           States and the United Kingdom: A Cross-National Comparison
    • Authors: Myers W; Lantz B.
      Pages: 1034 - 1055
      Abstract: AbstractHate is a global phenomenon as evidenced by recent increases in hate crimes in both the United States and the United Kingdom; unfortunately, these crimes are also substantially underreported in both nations. Following this, this research presents an examination of racially motivated hate crimes and victim reporting to the police in both nations using data from the National Crime Victimization Survey and the Crime Survey of England and Wales from 2003 to 2015. Results indicate that, overall, victim reporting has been increasing in the United Kingdom and decreasing in the United States. Disaggregating by victim and offender race, however, reveals divergent trends such that anti-black hate crime victim reporting is increasing in the United States and decreasing in the United Kingdom. Policy and research implications are discussed.

  • Indigeneity, prisoner visitation and reincarceration in Australia: The
           association between visits in prison and reincarceration for Indigenous
           and Non-Indigenous people
    • Authors: Ryan N; Ackerman J, Ready J, et al.
      Pages: 1056 - 1079
      Abstract: AbstractPrison visitation is believed to protect against reincarceration post-release. This research explored differences in prisoner visitation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, the predictors of visitation and the effects of visitation on the risk of reincarceration. Descriptive analyses, logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards models were conducted using survey and linked administrative data for 1,238 Australian prisoners. We found that Indigenous people compared to non-Indigenous people were less likely to be visited, and travel distance decreased the likelihood of visitation for both groups. Moreover, visitation protected against reincarceration for non-Indigenous people only. Potential explanations for why visitation was not found to protect against reincarceration for Indigenous people are discussed as are potential implications for criminal justice systems that house Indigenous offenders.

  • Inclusion and Exclusion through Risk-Based Justice: Analysing Combinations
           of Risk Assessment from Pretrial Detention to Release
    • Authors: van Eijk G.
      Pages: 1080 - 1097
      Abstract: AbstractAs the use of risk-based practices has proliferated in many jurisdictions, justice-involved individuals are often subjected to multiple risk assessments at various moments and with different purposes as they move through the criminal justice system. This article examines the ways in which different risk-based practices are combined and evaluates these combinations in terms of inclusion and exclusion of marginalized offender categories. By understanding risk-based practices in terms of the distribution of resources, the article conceptualizes how the accumulation of bias could exacerbate exclusionary effects and how contradictory risk-informed decisions could undermine inclusionary interventions. Understanding the interplay of different risk-based practices is essential for the practical and ethical judgement of risk-based justice.

  • ‘They Tell Me I’m Dangerous’: Incarcerated Mothers, Scandinavian
           Prisons and the Ambidextrous Penal–Welfare State
    • Authors: Ystanes V; Ugelvik T.
      Pages: 892 - 910
      Abstract: AbstractAmbidextrous states can grasp citizens with both the welfare/support-oriented left hand and the punishment/control-oriented right hand. When people go to prison in such contexts, they may simultaneously face punishment and welfare interventions. Based on interviews with six women serving prison sentences in Norway for violence against their own children, this article discusses certain aspects of the prison experience in welfare-state prisons. Their criminal sentences, and the associated stigma and feelings of shame, weighed heavily on these women, but they eventually felt the state’s welfare-oriented left hand was tighter and more punitive than the right hand. This article describes their experiences and strategies in coping with the challenges they faced as prisoners in an ambidextrous state.
