The unregulated and widespread digital release of arrest and booking information, court records,
and criminal history reports is creating new forms of punishment and social control in the United States.
The government production and sale of criminal records to big data vendors has effectively
created a new class of criminal record consumers who obtain and spread this information
through social media, online news, and commercial background check reports. This study
analyzes the forces that have led to this state of affairs and the consequences for understanding
stigma and the criminal label in the digital age.
