"Not only are physically unattractive teenagers likely to be stay-at-homes on prom night, they're also more likely to grow up to be criminals, say two economists who tracked the life course of young people from high school through early adulthood."
"These economists found that the long-term consequences of being young and ugly were small but consistent. Cute guys were uniformly less likely than averages would indicate to have committed seven crimes including burglary and selling drugs, while the unhandsome were consistently more likely to have broken the law."

What I'd like to know is if the study focused solely on blue-collar crime. There have been other studies suggesting that attractive people are more likely to succeed in the white-collar job market. Consequently, I'd be willing to bet that attractive people commit a disproportionate number of white-collar crimes. Unfortunately, in typical MSM fashion, there's no link to additional information. Anybody out there know more about the variety of crime statistics involved in this study?
