Nearly 1 in 3 Arrested by Age 23

Nearly a third of Americans have a record by the time they are 23.

That's according to a study in the latest issue of the journal Pediatrics.

Researchers found just over 30 percent of 23-year-old's say they've been arrested.

That's higher than the 22-percent from a study in 1965.

Analysts used a national sample of adolescents and young adults collected between 1997 and 2008.

The study does not specify racial or regional differences.
