Alexes Harris and Team Track Monetary Sanctions in Multiple States
Posted: 4/25/2017 (CSDE Research)
Alexes Harris, CSDE Affiliate and Professor of Sociology at UW, recently published findings from a multi-state study on monetary sanctions. Harris’s team, which includes former CSDE postdoc Bryan Sykes and former CSDE Affiliate Becky Pettit, examined legal policy in nine states in hopes of better understanding how fiscal penalties can impact the (often already poor) recipients. Backed by funding from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, the group aims to map these varied policies over the course of the next five years. You can read their first report and learn more about the group itself below.
