The purpose of this study was to investigate possible predictive factors for juvenile criminality. This study was nested within a prospective cohort study that looked at two groups of inner city children at ages 4, 5, and 6 years old in 1991, 1992, and 1993, and ages 11, 12, and 13 in 1999. The subjects were randomly chosen from children referred to the Department of Health and Human Services (Child Protection Services) of Hamilton County Ohio for allegations of child abuse. The subjects were those subsequently substantiated as being high risk for continued abuse, and placed into either a foster home or a relative's home for protection (N = 77). Subjects (N = 20) were obtained from the Juvenile Justice database. The controls (N = 57) had no records with the Juvenile Justice System. The current study utilized an observational case control design. The information on potential factors was hand collected from the DHHS family based multi-record keeping system. Multivariate analysis yielded a model consisting of three factors suggestive as predictors for criminal behaviors in these groups. The three factors were (1) the age of the allegation (Odds Ratio 1.26) (2) the number of years from the initial allegation to initial placement (Odds Ratio 1.43), and (3) the subsequent placement into long term foster care after the initial placement (Odds Ratio 9.83). Descriptive data indicated that 88.3% of the children suffered more than 3 types of child abuse (Physical, Sexual, Neglect (including Psychological Maltreatment), and Witnessing Domestic Violence) and that 74 out of 77 of the mothers had a mental illness that had not been treated. This study has implications for early intervention in high-risk child abuse cases, and for investigation of identification and treatment of mental disorders in this population.
