From time to time, I meet people who sincerely want to help felons. I'm sharing a note that was sent to me recently from one who calls himself Trashisfree.

I have personally done quite well post prison, buying a new house 35 days out. Without a regular job I have survived quite well, and in another 2.5 years my house is payed off. Eventually I need to finish a book that I started "The Frugal Felon - Surviving Hard Times Without A Job. How to cut your expenses and make a living when you do not have a job". Freely available online currently at http://www.webook.com/project/The-Frugal-Felon-Surviving-Hard-Times-Without-A-Job

I have been exploring the possibility of class action lawsuits against both state governments and the federal government. After release, former male inmates work nine fewer weeks annually and take home 40 percent less in annual earnings, making $23,500 instead of $39,100. That amounts to an expected earnings loss of nearly $179,000 through age 48 for men who have been incarcerated.

Of former inmates who were in the bottom of the earnings distribution in 1986, two-thirds remained there in 2006, twice the number of non-incarcerated men.
Incarceration reduces former inmates’ earnings by 40 percent and limits their future economic mobility, according to a new Pew report. www.pewtrusts.org/news_room_detail.aspx?id=60964
The class action is based on lifetime economic damage far beyond the original sentence. This is double jeopardy, punishing someone 2 times for the same crime. An unsealable felony is effectively a lifetime sentence.

I feel that facing such expensive lawsuits, allowing people to let people seal their records after 7 years as a settlement would be reasonable and fair. That is 7 years after completely discharging their sentence, no additional felony convictions. Your criminal record would still visible to the criminal court system. I came up with 7 years, since that is the same amount of time as a bankruptcy. It is also a reasonable amount of time to show that you are no longer a danger to society.

An additional provision would be when an employer submits a background check, there would be a check box that for jobs that include working with children. Anyone with certain crimes against children would not be allowed to work that job, forever. However they would be able to find employment at any job that does not include working with children, after the 7 year period without anything showing up on their background check.
