Desisting from Crime

Continuity and Change in Long-term Crime Patterns of Serious Chronic Offenders

Michael E. Ezell and Lawrence E. Cohen

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

  • A groundbreaking empirical study examining patterns of crime among persistent juvenile offenders
  • Demonstrates that many apparently hardened criminals will 'grow out' of crime by the time they reach their early to mid- 20s
  • The findings have profound implications for penal policies that impose life sentences on multiple offenders
