What noun can be used for persons who are likely to commit a crime? The scenario is that the person might have never committed a crime in their life but if you analyze the current state of things in their life, you'd conclude that they are most probably going to commit a crime in the foreseeable future.
Just like sci-fi movies, based on predictive modeling and data analysis, we can identify _______. (word for those who are likely to commit a crime)
Words considered but that don't fit:
suspect - A person thought to be guilty of a crime or offense
perpetrator - A person who carries out a harmful, illegal, or immoral act.
I guess both words signify that the crime has already occurred. Please correct me if I am wrong.
