The American Bar Association (ABA) has created an interactive online database of on-going punishment, aka “collateral consequences,” for each U.S. jurisdiction. This state-by-state resource compiles all laws and restrictions about on-going punishments imposed on people because of past convictions.
The database is called “The National Inventory of the Collateral Consequences of Conviction” and it explains its mission in the following way: “The collateral consequences of a criminal conviction—legal sanctions and restrictions imposed upon people because of their criminal record—are hard to find and harder to understand. Now it will be easier to do both. Congress directed the National Institute of Justice to collect and study collateral consequences in all U.S. jurisdictions, and NIJ selected the ABA Criminal Justice Section to perform the necessary research and analysis. The results are now being made available through this interactive tool.”
