"The perceptions of individuals with criminal backgrounds may lead to an unfair judgement from their peers or even employers. These perceptions can hold someone back who may have committed a crime in their young age that may ultimately follow them for the rest of their adult life. The questions in this study are to determine how their own peers see them and how they think that perceptions will affect the lives of an student with a criminal record. Do they think the student with a criminal record will have the same opportunities as they do after college?"
