Criminal Penalties Can Be Extremely Serious
Most people realize that violent crimes such as homicide or sexual assault can lead to serious penalties, often including extended time in prison. However, some people are not aware that convictions for even relatively minor offenses can still have a significant effect on your life if you do not have a strong defense. Some of the common consequences of criminal convictions include:
- Points on your driver’s license
- Suspension or revocation of your driver’s license
- Payment of fines, restitution, and court costs
- Substance abuse evaluation and/or treatment
- Time in jail or state prison
In addition to the above penalties, having a traffic or criminal conviction on your record can negatively affect your professional opportunities.
