Recent Study Finds 1 in 3 Arrested by Age 23 

Professor Shawn Bushway co-authored a recent study, “Cumulative Prevalence of Arrest From Ages 8 to 23 in a National Sample,” published in the January 2012 issue of Pediatrics. The study focuses on how more American youth “are arrested or taken into custody for criminal activities, resulting in a destructive and unhealthy start in life.” It has garnered significant national and international media attention, featured in nearly 200 news articles, including the New York Times, USA Today, Salon.com, the Daily Mail (United Kingdom), and Xinhua (a news agency in China).
