6. Homelessness, neglect.

7. Low level of work of educational institutions.

8. Promotion in mass media, literature of standards of antisocial behavior (culture of violence, cruelty, drugs, pornographies).

4. Malicious - such minors have a steady, dominating, antisocial orientation of the personality which is caused by all behavior of this person.

Also the weakened sense of shame, fieriness, roughness and cruelty is characteristic of minor criminals. They are emotionally not counterbalanced, vain, lazy, stubborn, tolerant to sufferings of others, and they considerably weakened strong-willed qualities.

For the crimes committed by minors there is a number of features :

2. The narrow circle of crimes made by them.

3. Crimes are committed near the place of the residence.
