Shakespeare Again

In "The Winter's Tale" Shakespeare says:-

I would there were no age between sixteen and
three-and-twenty, or that youth would sleep out the
rest; for there is nothing in the between but
getting wenches with child, wronging the ancientry,
stealing, fighting.

Some modern academic research suggests that 23 is still the age by which most
offenders pack it in and settle down. Clever old chap, wasn't he?
