LARRY J. SIEGEL was born in the Bronx. While living on Jerome Avenue and attending City College of New York 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? He applied his interest in social forces and human behavior to the study of crime and justice. Graduating from college in 1968, he was accepted into the first class of the newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany, where he earned both his MA and PhD degrees. Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University, where he was a faculty member for nine years. He also held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire before being appointed a full professor in the School of Criminology and Justice Studies at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. Dr. Siegel retired from full-time classroom teaching in 2015 and now teaches exclusively online. He has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, criminal justice, corrections, 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, Larry Siegel and his wife, Terry, now reside in Naples, Florida, with their two dogs, Watson and Cody..
