Study: 1 in 3 Arrested by 23 Years Old
UNDATED – A shocking report released today (Monday) says nearly one in three people will be arrested by the time they turn 23-years-old. The study is in the journal Pediatrics.
Stearns County Attorney Janelle Kendall was on WJON this (Monday) morning and says that number seems awfully high.
The national study is an analysis of data collected between 1997 and 2008. The arrests included: truancy, vandalism, underage drinking, shoplifting, robbery, assault and murder.
It did not include minor traffic offenses. Not all of the arrests may have resulted in criminal charges.
