Study: Nearly Half of Black Men Arrested by 23

Thirty percent of Black males have been arrested by the age of 18, and 49 percent have been arrested by the age of 23. This compares to 40 percent of whites by age 23. The study says that early contact with the criminal justice system can impede on employment, reduce access to housing and block access to higher education for males. (Photo: John Gress/Landov)
