Forgiving and Forgetting in American Justice: A 50-State Guide to Expungement and Restoration of Rights

Collateral Consequences Resource CenterThis report from the Collateral Consequences Resource Center catalogs and analyzes the various provisions for relief from the collateral consequences of conviction that are now available in each state, including judicial record-sealing and certificates of relief, executive pardon, and administrative nondiscrimination statutes.  The report’s goal is to facilitate a national conversation about how those who have a criminal record can best regain their legal rights and social status.
