U.S. researchers followed more than 7,300 12- to 16-year-olds for 14 years and found almost 14% of those who were bullied repeatedly throughout their childhood and teen years went to prison as adults compared to 6% of those without a history of bullying. In addition, more than 20% of these bullying victims were convicted of crimes. The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association.
