Abstract

One in four Americans now has some sort of criminal record, and the collateral consequences of conviction have become more severe and harder to mitigate. Criminal practitioners and courts are considering them as part of the criminal case in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Padilla v. Kentucky. Most civil practice areas – including employment, housing, and public contracts law – now involve conviction-related restrictions and disqualifications as well. This resource helps attorneys advise clients facing prosecution, clients who have an existing criminal record, and clients whose professional interests are affected. It also serves as a comprehensive guide to policy makers, advocates, and corrections professionals. Topics include: Various types of collateral consequences; Civil and criminal practice issues; Constitutional and statutory challenges; Access to and use of criminal records; Regulation of employment and licensing; Restoration of rights after conviction. State-by-state summaries and comparison charts are included for quick reference.

Keywords: Collateral Consequences, criminal defense, prosecution,
