The Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

Regardless of the nature and severity of a charge, every criminal defendant deserves an opportunity to preserve their reputation and freedom. There’s little doubt that the stain of a criminal conviction can devastate the future prospects of a criminal defendant. Aside from spending time in jail or prison, a criminal conviction can lead to such penalties as:

  • The loss of professional licenses
  • Revocation of voting privileges
  • Inability to own a firearm

The fact of the matter is a criminal conviction can upset nearly every aspect of a defendant’s life.
