He says that age has a lot to do with it - they get to their late thirties or forties and they want to change and start to find change possible. The younger ones, under exactly the same programme of support and supervision, keep re-offending.

This is true to an extent. It depends on the individual. It really is case specific, you can't generalize.

Psychopaths are harder, because, well, not sane. They are sane enough to understand the difference between right and wrong -- ie the legal definition of competency and/or sanity, but not sane enough to be remorseful. Often they believe they were justified.

But then there are sociopaths out there who've never committed a "major" crime...
