This article from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Research Scholar, Cynthia Golembeski, provides an overview of collateral consequences that could last a lifetime for those with criminal convictions in the United States.

These restrictions, tracked in great detail on the National Inventory of Collateral Consequences of Conviction (NICCC), can include everything like making it impossible to get a license to work as a barber, manicurist, plumber, driver, interior designer or midwife, to restricting where the formerly incarcerated can live, study and volunteer.
