Michael J, Esq. :

Hello - Thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to helping you with your criminal problem today.

Michael J, Esq. :

The Answer is A. B is a predictor of recidivism because those who misuse leisure time often get into trouble doing things they shouldn't. C is a predictor because those with a low IQ score/education often don't have job skills and have problems complying with probation and parole requirements. Sexual abuse is a predictor because those who have traumatic life experiences often have problems dealing with reality, especially after getting involved in crime.

Michael J, Esq. :
