In the US, the chances of being arrested are one in three by age 23. Youth offenders face a greater risk for early death than the rest of the population, according to a new study, that risk increases as a young person becomes more involved in the judicial system. The more serious and prolonged a youth’s interaction with the justice system becomes, the more likely he or she is to die prematurely.
