How only ONE CRIME in every 39 ENDS with a CONVICTION
ONLY one crime in 39 leads to a
conviction, according to a startling Home Office study.
The research project which has traced
the lives of hundreds of men over half a century, points to a hidden
wave of undetected crime.
THE man admitted committing hundreds
of crimes - yet ONLY 2.5 per cent led to convictions.
The STUDY raises fresh questions
about the effectiveness of the POLICE and COURTS at bringing Criminals
Officially, police solve around one
in four crimes. But the figure includes only the minority of offences
which are reported.
The ambitious Home Office project
dubbed the Cambridge Study, was launched in 1961.
It covered 411 primary school boys from
unnamed 'working class' area of South London, who were all then
aged eight or nine. They have since been interviewed about their
criminal behaviour at the ages of 14,18, 32, and finally at 48 providing
unprecedented insights into the likelihood of offending and the pattern
of criminal careers which they followed.#
The study has revealed that 41 per cent
of those surveyed had criminal convictions by the time they turned 50.
BUT 93 per cent of them admitted
committing significant crimes such as BURGLARY-THEFT-ASSAULT-FRAUD and
DRUG use. And almost half of all offences were carried out by men
who were never caught and punished.
Researchers found that for
every conviction among the group, they admitted to another 38 offences.
A minority of persistent offenders -
around 7 per cent of the total -were responsible for half the crimes.
Even among those who had been caught
and punished, there was an average of 22 offences for every conviction.
The commonest crime was vandalism, with
70 per cent of the boys admitting offending by the age of 14, and 75 per
cent by middle age.
Three-quarters admitted carrying out
assault, including more than a third by the age of 14, and one in seven
were still committing violent attacks in their 40's
Across the board fewer than ONE in
THREE self-confessed criminals had ever been convicted.
Tories claimed the findings showed
starkly why many criminals believed they would NOT BE CAUGHT.

Detection rates are far too low.
IT IS THE FEAR OF BEING CAUGHT RATHER
THAN BEING SENTENCED THAT AFFECTS OFFENDERS' INTENTIONS ABOUT COMMITTING
