1. Ex post facto laws are laws that criminalize conduct that was previously legal. These laws can also make punishments that were already in place more severe. For example, ex post facto laws may add years to a defendant’s sentence. There are two clauses in the U.S. Constitution that prohibit ex post facto laws. Specifically, Article 1, Section 9 dictates that Congress cannot pass any ex post facto laws, and Article 1, Section 10explains the same rule for the states.
