About the Author
Dr. Ray Spencer learned about the intricacies of the American legal system while studying for his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. His education became unexpectedly useful when, during his career as a law-enforcement officer, he himself was arrested and imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit.
Spencer relied on his criminal-justice knowledge to survive in prison and hide his law-enforcement identity. He continued working on his education and eventually completed a concurrent master’s-doctoral program in psychology. He credits his wife, Norma, for supporting him while he was writing his memoirs.
