Brame is quoted in a USA Today article to have said, "Arrest is a pretty common experience.'
The Pediatrics articles is entitled 'Cumulative Prevalence of Arrest From Ages 8 to 23 in a National Sample.'
The study looked at young people from the ages of eight to 23 years who had been 'arrested or taken into custody for illegal or delinquent offenses (excluding arrests for minor traffic violations)'.
The authors used the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, which held records from 1997 to 2008.
The paper was authored by Brame, a criminologist, and Michael G. Turner, (both from the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of North Carolina), Raymond Patemoster (from the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Maryland at College Park), and Shawn D. Bushway (from the School of Criminal Justice at State University of New York, Albany).
