Spinal cord injury combined with felony history: Effect on supported employment for Veterans

James LePage, PhD, et al.

One purpose of this study was to see how frequent legal problems were for a group of Veterans with spinal cord injury who were seeking employment. There was a high rate of arrests and convictions: more than 47% reported at least one past arrest and more than 25% reported at least one felony conviction. A second purpose of the study was to see whether legal history negatively affected employment in this group of Veterans. The findings suggest that Veterans with a higher rate of felony conviction do have a lower rate of employment.
