In his testimony before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, The Sentencing Project’s Executive Director Marc Mauer presents an overview of the range of consequences that affect people with criminal convictions as well as an assessment of their impact on reentry, recidivism, and civic participation. He also offers recommendations for reform to address some of these issues.
