(KMOV) – Roughly one in four Americans has had at least one criminal arrest by the time they are 18 years old, according to a new study in Pediatrics Magazine.

The number is even higher for those age 23 – that number is about one in three.

These arrests do not include traffic violations.

Researchers say they cannot point to one reason explaining why the rates are rising.
