Packingham v. North Carolina
United States Supreme Court; Case No. 15-1194
Decision below 368 N.C. 380 (N.C. Nov. 6, 2015).
The sentencing process already serves the objectives underlying many collateral consequence laws. Unlike the sentencing process, many collateral consequence laws impose restrictions absent any consideration of the specific offense or the individual convicted of it. Many collateral consequence laws create strict liability offenses, which pass constitutional muster only if they are carefully drawn to advance public safety objectives.
