Definition

Noun: someone who does not obey established rules, a person who behaves badly, wrongdoer, outlaw, malefactor, villain, rascal, scoundrel, lowlife, culprit, offender, lawbreaker, criminal, delinquent, reprobate, troublemaker

Adjective: behaving badly or in a foul way

Example

When society uses its muscle to regulate conduct—to make certain actions criminal—it does so by punishing or threatening to punish wrongdoers and miscreants. By what authority or for what reason can society bring its weight to bear on an individual who has violated that society’s rules? For centuries, philosophers have sought to identify society’s moral right to fine, incarcerate, and punish miscreants.
