You say he has been unruly " since the age of 16", so I guess he is now older than 16, though you don;t mention his current age. If he is so certain that there is nothing wrong with him, how does he explain his violent outbursts and the subsequent crying ? Don't get into another argument about this, but sympathetically ask for an explaation, to help you understand the situation. And if therapy didn't help him ( it often can't, if this is indeed Sociopathy ) he won't have lost anything by trying it. If he acts hatefully towasrds you for trying to get him to acknowledge that there is a problem, there may be nothing more you can do at this time. The girl's parents ought to be the one's involved in assisting her, ratehr than you being seen as intruding in the relationship.
Of course you love your boy, even though many of his behaviours may be unloveable. Such conditions cannot be treated without the full consent and co-operation of the inividual, and this is rarely given in the case of Sociopathy ; and even then treatment is difficult and often unsuccessful. Sorry to confirm such sad news, but this is the reality of this condition, if it has been correctly diagnosed. It may be helpful for you to see a counsellor to focus on coming to terms with the situation and planning the most effective ways you can interact with him
