Know the Consequences Of a Criminal Charge

The consequences of a criminal conviction can be significant. Beyond the direct criminal penalties there are a number of additional issues that must be carefully considered. For example, juveniles, college students, military personnel and licensed professionals may have more at stake than they realize.

  • Teenagers / Juveniles who are convicted of a criminal offense may face difficulty getting into college, qualifying for student loans or finding employment later in life. College students charged with a crime are at risk for suspension, expulsion and losing their eligibility for student loans.
  •  Military personnel face consequences in terms of career, benefits and discipline within the military system of justice itself. A conviction may impact their ability to hold a security clearance.
  • Licensed professionals may lose their license and ability to earn a living. All risk losing their freedom for at least some period of time.
