Juvenile Delinquents, Two Types?

A new longitudinal study reports that past delinquent behavior does not necessarily translate into future crimes.  The most important indicators are social and familial circumstances.  I'll leave it up to you to think of all the different possible scenarios that could lead juvenile delinquents to stop committing crimes.  A few subtype boxes and combinations is certainly not enough to fully predict future criminal behavior - individual differences and perception of life experiences probably plays a large role.
