Re-Entry and Reintegration: The Road to Public Safety

This New York State Bar Association report addresses the effects of the criminal proceedings on individuals who have been convicted of a crime and on those who have served a period of incarceration in New York, as well as on those who have merely been charged and never convicted. This report considers one group of factors in connection with increasing successful reentry and decreasing recidivism: the ancillary, indirect, unanticipated, or hidden effects- often termed “collateral consequences”- of being charged with, convicted of, or incarcerated for a crime.
