If you’re facing criminal charges, your future is at risk. Even a misdemeanor conviction comes with long-term consequences. Your conviction could prevent you from obtaining a good job, finding housing, or even getting a loan. A criminal conviction carries with it many consequences such as time in prison, fines, and fees. You could also lose certain rights and privileges, including the ability to possess a firearm or hold a driver’s license. And your criminal record will be accessible to any potential employers or landlords or whenever you have a background check completed.
