John Wooldredge is a professor in the School of Criminal Justice at the University of Cincinnati. He received his Ph.D. in Sociology in 1986 from the University of Illinois. His research and publications focus on institutional corrections (crowding, inmate crimes and victimizations) and criminal case processing (sentencing and recidivism, and micro- versus macro-level extralegal disparities in case processing and outcomes). He is currently involved in research on neighborhood effects on sentencing, official responses to prison inmate rule violations, prisoner victimization, and factors shaping correctional officer professionalism and morale. In the undergraduate program, he teaches courses on institutional corrections and research methods.  His courses in the graduate program include a seminar on institutional corrections, and classes on the general linear model (Statistics II), multi-level modeling, and sampling.
