The process of being charged with a crime can be complex and intimidating and the repercussions of a conviction can be severe. Penalties for a criminal conviction can include counseling, community service, fines, loss of driver’s license or professional licensure, probation, jail or prison. Even Misdemeanors that may appear insignificant, with minimal fines or imprisonment, can result in lifelong consequences for the individual. Criminal offenses can appear during routine background checks, which are increasingly used by potential employers or landlords. Those men and women working with the government or whose employment requires a military security clearance are at risk of losing their security clearance and/or job if they are convicted of a criminal offense.
