High profile cases (e.g., Gary McKinnon) and anecdotal evidence from law enforcement highlighted a potential link between ASD and cyber-dependent offending (i.e., offending that cannot be committed without a computer), yet there is a paucity of empirical research to refute or support this notion. Chapter Five addresses this deficit in two ways: (1) by assessing autistic traits and cyber-deviant behaviour and; (2) identifying reasons for engaging or desisting from cyber-dependent deviancy. The discussion (Chapter Six) interprets and discusses the findings with reference to applicable theory and practical implications, before discussing the limitations and avenues for future research.
