criminal justice theories

posted by .

I have a scenerio of a 14 yr old boy from a poor family who shoplifts a mountain dew from a local convenience store. i have to comeup with a comprehensive, clear, and well-constructed response of the theory of the biological explanation for his actions and i am having the hardest time finding the words to say. i know what biological explanation is, but i am drawing a blank as to how to write it according to this particular scenerio.

You might use Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Explain in your paper that the boy was fulfilling his primary body needs.
