Dr Zach Hoskins discusses the collateral legal consequences of a conviction on Hi-Phi Nation

Dr Zach Hoskins recently discussed the collateral legal consequences of a conviction on an episode of the podcast Hi-Phi Nation. The episode, titled 'Punishment Without End' aired 6 June 2020.

The interview drew on themes in Hoskins's new book Beyond Punishment: A Nomative Account of the Collateral Legal Consequences of Conviction (Oxford University Press, 2019).

Hoskins discussed how we should determine whether various collateral restrictions -- such as voting bans, employment restrictions, and others -- are best treated civil measures or as additional measures of punishment. He told host Barry Lam that if we take seriously the importance of punishment as the way offenders pay their debts to society, then there is a strong presumption against imposing additional burdensome restrictions outside the context of their punishment.
