NACDL - Race and Collateral Consequences

Race and Collateral Consequences

The troubling confluence of overcriminalization and ever-expanding collateral consequences in the electronic era has not affected all people equally. Poor and minority communities, where residents are policed most heavily and where zero-tolerance policing practices have led to skyrocketing numbers of minor quality of life arrests, bear the brunt of the nation's crimialization obsession. As a result, African Americans and Hispanics bear the brunt of consequences that follow a criminal record.
