A. The collateral consequences of a criminal conviction are the loss of important constitutional rights, eligibility for government benefits, and other sanctions imposed upon the offender as a result of a guilty plea or conviction in addition to imprisonment, fines, restitution, community service, supervised or unsupervised probation, and other terms and conditions imposed the sentencing judge. Examples of collateral consequences include loss of the right to vote, ineligibility for citizenship and deportation for immigrants (even those who hold permanent resident status), and ineligibility to receive public funds such as student loans or welfare benefits.
