Jail and prison time, fines, restitution, probation, and parole are all punishments for crime. It's right and just that people face the consequences of their actions. But for many formerly incarcerated individuals, their sentence doesn't end when they walk out of prison. There are more than 1100 laws in Oregon that limit people's ability to successfully reintegrate into society. It's better for all of us if those leaving our jails and prisons are able to make a new life for themselves that doesn't involve crime.
