Description:  Crime victims often suffer immeasurable harm as a result of the crime. Restitution is one mechanism by which the criminal justice system can ensure that the perpetrators, not the victims, bear the burden of crime victims’ economic losses. Fortunately, every jurisdiction has laws in place addressing restitution, and dozens of jurisdictions provide victims with constitutional and statutory rights to full restitution in every case. Every jurisdiction also has laws in place to help enforce restitution orders--including availability of sanctions, among other criminal consequences, and the designation of government agencies to help collect restitution for victims. Unfortunately, the reality is that despite these laws, victims are fighting every day to secure the full amount of restitution ordered by the criminal courts. This program will address securing collection of restitution from the perspective of a victims’ attorney. The presenter will focus on collecting restitution, relying on tools available to victims' attorneys in both civil and criminal courts, outlining key steps for victims’ attorneys to consider, identifying common challenges, and highlighting some litigation strategies to help maximize recovery of the amounts due from the perpetrators.

Retroactivity: Are Convictions Ever Final?


MCLE Accreditation: This training has been approved for 1 general MCLE credit by the State Bar of California and Oregon State Bar.  The training may be eligible for MCLE credit in other states; a certificate of attendance will be available after the program.
Duration: 65 minutes (1.0 credit)
Original Program Date: Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Presenter: Tung Yin, J.D., Professor of Law, Lewis & Clark Law School. Professor Yin's bio is available here.

Description: When the United States Supreme Court issues a decision―such as Miranda v. Arizona―announcing a new rule of law and overturning a criminal defendant's conviction, did that rule apply retroactively, calling into question the conviction of all other prisoners whose convictions were flawed by the same constitutional violation? Surprisingly, the Supreme Court didn't start to address retroactivity until the 1960s. Despite seeming to settle the issue in Teague v. Lane in 1989, the Court issued more retroactivity decisions, and even Congress got involved with the issue in the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. This program will provide an overview of this area of law and discuss how lower courts resolve the issue of retroactivity. Understanding this complex area of law can inform effective victims' rights advocacy.
