Description

Examines patterns of offending among persistent juvenile offenders. Employing quantitative techniques to offenders with high rates of recidivism, this work demonstrates that many of these apparently hardened criminals will 'grow out' of crime by the time they reach their early to mid- 20s.

'Criminology is full of great debates, especially those surrounding the identification of brute facts of crime. Two of these...concern the relationship between age and crime and the relationship between past and future criminal activity...serious students of crime make it a point to carefully consider these issues....[this book] serves as an exemplar to all criminologists as to not only how to conduct sound research on key criminological questions, but also to do so in a way that is careful not to go beyond the reach of data.'

Texte du rabat

This groundbreaking study examines patterns of offending among persistent juvenile offenders. Employing advanced quantitative techniques to offenders with very high rates of recidivism, Ezell and Cohen demonstrate that many of these apparently hardened criminals will "grow out" of crime by the time they reach their early to mid-20s. This finding has profound implications for penal policies that impose life sentences on multiple offenders.
