Committed when he was aged 24, but he was not convicted for them until more than a year later, when he had passed his twenty-fifth birthday. In this sample, the peak age for the number of different youths convicted (47) and for the number of convictions (63) was 17. By age 22, these figures had fallen by half, to 24 youths convicted and 33 convictions. By age 24, the figures were only about a quarter of their peak values, at 13 youths and 18 convictions. The peak period of official delinquency for this sample was from 14 to 20, with over 40 convictions (10 per 100 youths) at each age.
