Convicted in Cook
Cook County Convictions Data
Youth carry overwhelming number of convictions in Cook County
This project is an analysis of five years of Cook County conviction data. When a violent crime is picked up by the news media, it's often sensationalized so that every minor detail is brought into the public purview. Meanwhile, the vast majority of convictions - mostly drug related - are given little notice. This project attempts to answer several questions regarding convictions in Cook County.
Criminal Justice System, Expunge, Juvenile Record
Erase your juvenile record
This is a resource for people with juvenile records in Illinois. A juvenile record can be a barrier to employment, education, and housing. Luckily, juvenile records can be erased through the expungement process. However, while the majority of juvenile records can be erased, few people know about or take advantage of the opportunity. Expunge.io seeks to clarify juvenile expungement, with the hope of more people getting their records erased!
