Recent research has demonstrated that individuals who are bullied as children are more likely to get convictions for committing crimes in later life and are more likely to end up in jail.
In the study, the individuals were split into 4 groups :
1) Those who had been bullied as children (under the age of 12 years)
2) Those who had been bullied as teens (over the age of 12 years)
3) Those who had suffered bullying throughout both their childhood and their teens
4) Those who had not been bullied.
