Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx in 1947. Growing up in the city, he became fascinated by the effects social forces had on human development and behavior. While attending the City College of New York in the 1960s, he was introduced to the study of crime and justice in courses taught by sociologist Charles Winick. His newly developing interest led him to attend the School of Criminal Justice at the State University of New York at Albany where he completed his master's thesis in 1970, undertaking a study of attorneys in the juvenile court process, and then completed his Ph.D. in 1975, conducting a study measuring the effects of the juvenile court process on the self-image of youth. Dr. Siegel began his teaching career in 1971 at Northeastern University in Boston, where he taught courses on juvenile justice, research methods, and statistics. After leaving Northeastern in 1980, he held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. He is currently a professor at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including more than a dozen books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, criminal procedure, and other topics. He is a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases. He resides in Bedford, New Hampshire, with his wife, Therese J. Libby, Esq.
