MORE than one third of teenage criminals on the Isle of Wight re-offend within one year, according to government figures.
Figures released by the Ministry of Justice reveal 39 per cent of young offenders committed a further crime within 12 months of their conviction during 2011, compared with the national average of 36 per cent. Re-offending rates increased from 36 per cent during 2010, when the national average was 34.1 per cent.
The number of fresh crimes carried out by young re-offenders each year also increased, from 2.58 in 2010 to 3.08 in 2011, compared with the national average of 2.82 and 2.88 respectively.
