Choice theory influences criminal behaviors as it is believed that an individual has control over their actions and those following reactions are made after rationally thinking about what doing the crime will entail (Schram & Tibbetts, 2021). With this theory, it is believed that an individual considers informal deterrence factors, these being family, friends, and/or the community, and many of these informal factors may be more important than formal deterrence factors (Schram & Tibbetts, 2021). If someone is more concerned with what their family may think of them after they commit a crime, they may be more likely to not commit that crime, while some may not have those connections to be concerned about or that those connections will not show disapproval for the crime.
Victimology is the study of victims which includes different reasons as to how an individual may be more likely to be victimized, the legal rights of victims, and the frequency of victimization within an area (Schram & Tibbetts, 2021). There are many factors that go into being victimized with some factors leading people to be more vulnerable than others (Dillenburger, 2007). By also addressing that victimization does happen to certain populations with some being more vulnerable than others. It also allows for more room for acceptance that people are victims, either one who has stumbled on to an event or a person who has stepped into the role of victim and has not learned that they do not need to be a victim (Dillenburger, 2007). This can also go into how different cultures have different expectations and views on victims and how people can come out of it with a mindset of being a survivor and use their experience to shape a better future for themselves, by rising above it (Dillenburger, 2007). The use of victimology can also help people better understand transgenerational trauma and how it can affect not just those directly affected by even those who are born in the future (Dillenburger, 2007).

According to Sean and Barton-Bellessa (2015), people engage in criminal behavior when a criminal act is presented as a “opportunity“, which is an influence of choice theory. This means that any person can choose to engage in criminal behaviors, when or if the opportunity to do so, has been presented. A simple example would be getting in a fight and being charged for assault. I would say it’s somewhat common for people who are under the influence to get a verbal with anyone and everyone about a minor disagreement, and a confrontation breaks out. If there is a woman involved, men will feel the need to cause a scene and disregard their behaviors, actions, and consequences. Choice theory simply influences criminal behavior through rational decision-making, which is something that occurs in the present moment in any given place or time.
