Racanelli and Strange Discuss Impact of Criminal Records in NYLJ

April 3, 2017

O’Melveny partner Mark Racanelli and associate Brianna Strange co-wrote the article, “Ending Endless Punishment: Why Judges Should Address Criminal Records at Sentencing” published in the April 3, 2017, issue of the New York Law Journal

The authors discuss the implications of a criminal record, writing, “While criminal defendants expect punishment when they are sentenced, they also expect that when their debt is paid they can work to rebuild their lives. What many do not expect is that even after their sentence is complete, their punishment often continues as a result of having a criminal record.”
