Relief from the Collateral Consequences of a Criminal Conviction
William S. Hein & Co., 2006 | ISBN: 0-8377-3412-6 | $68.00
Book Description: The guide is the first comprehensive survey of U.S. laws and practices that offers a way to 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 set-aside, certificates of rehabilitation and laws that limit consideration of conviction in connection with employment and licensing. The heart of the guide is its detailed descriptions for each U.S. jurisdiction of available relief mechanisms and how they operate. Includes charts allowing easy state-to-state comparisons. It is an invaluable resource for policymakers and researchers dealing with the legal barriers to offender re-entry, and for practitioners at every level of the justice system.
Due to frequent changes in this area of law, Love plans to update this work every six months
