Male Psychopaths and Their Criminal Careers.
Hare, Robert D.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v56 n5 p710-14 Oct 1988
Examined criminal histories of male psychopaths and nonpsychopaths, exploring time in prison and conviction rates for five-year periods between ages of 16 and 45. Criminal activities of nonpsychopaths were relatively constant over years; activities of psychopaths remained high until around age 40, then declined dramatically. Results are consistent with clinical impressions that some psychopaths burn out with age. (Author/NB)
