Eventually Alex's power over his friends crumble and they leave him blinded after murdering an old lady, leaving him to the police.
Alex (at only 14) gets sent to prison and, rather than serve his full sentence, signs up for an experimental rehabilitation project, which subjects him to torture and drops him into the outside world where he is unable to harm others due to the extreme nature of the tests.
Although he cannot harm others, others can harm him.
