About the Author Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx, New York. While living on Jerome Avenue and attending City College of New York (CCNY) in the 1960s, he was swept up in the social and political currents of the time. He became intrigued with the influence contemporary culture had on individual behavior: Did people shape society or did society shape people? Dr. Siegal applied his interest in social forces and human behavior to the study of crime and justice. After graduating from CCNY, he attended the newly opened School of Criminal Justice at the State University of New York at Albany, earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University, where he was a faculty member for 9 years. He also held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, before joining the faculty at the School of Criminology and Justice Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell (UML). He is now professor emeritus at UML. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the areas of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, corrections, criminal justice, courts, private security and criminal procedure. He is a court-certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases. The father of four and grandfather of three, Dr. Siegel and his wife, Therese J. Libby, now reside in Naples, Florida. JOHN L. WORRALL is Professor of Criminology at the University of Texas at Dallas. A Seattle native, he received a BA, double majoring in psychology and law and justice, from Central Washington University in 1994. Both his MA (criminal justice) and PhD (political science) were received from Washington State University, where he graduated in 1999. From 1999 to 2006, he was a member of the criminal justice faculty at California State University, San Bernardino. He joined UTD in Fall 2006. Dr. Worrall has published articles and book chapters on topics ranging from legal issues in policing to crime measurement. He is the author of Crime Control in America: What Works? (3rd ed., Pearson) and Criminal Procedure: From First Contact to Appeal (5th ed., Pearson); coauthor of several texts, including most recently, with Jennifer L. Moore, Criminal Law and Procedure (Pearson, 2014); and editor of the journal Police Quarterly.
