Relief from the Collateral Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

2010, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Procedure admin

A State-By-State Resource Guide
By: Margaret Colgate Love

This work, which was cited by Justice Ginsburg in a Supreme Court decision for Logan v. United States, is the first complete survey of U.S. laws and practices that overcome or mitigate the collateral legal consequences of a criminal conviction. It begins with short analytical pieces on executive pardon, judicial expungement and sealing, deferred adjudication, and laws that limit consideration of conviction in connection with employment licensing. The heart of this guide is its detailed descriptions of available relief mechanisms for each U.S. jurisdiction and how they operate. This guide is an invaluable resource for policymakers and legal researchers dealing with the barriers to offender re-entry and for practitioners at every level of the justice system.
