    Lying, and deceitfulness are common traits. Anti-social behavior in a variety of forms is also common. The homicidal triad is well documented (bed wetting at inappropriate ages, cruelty to animals or small children, and fire starting) are all reflections of frustration with lack of self control. Remember, as I learned being a school teacher, behaviour usually reflects personality traits.

    As a teacher in a juvenile detention facility, I find this a very interesting question. All of my students are deceitful and a few are compulsive liars. Almost all are involved in drugs (biochemical). Some, though not all, are from "bad" homes (nurture). I find that most are involved in criminal activities by their own choice (rational choice theory) because their friends are involved. They want to belong, so they jump into the activity, too. Many are involved to make money in an easy way. It's all good until they get caught, then there will be remorse. There are also alot of folks with psychological problems, sometimes diagnosed, sometimes not. There are many reasons, often varied and there are many current examples, no matter which theory you decide to go with. Good luck with your paper!
