Penalties Associated with Conviction
It would be difficult to overstate the importance of preventing a criminal conviction and the repercussions such an outcome could have throughout your life.
Depending on whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony, you could be facing:
- Jail or prison time
- Steep fines and restitution
- Lengthy probationary periods
You would also have a criminal record, which could prevent you from securing credit or housing or even make it difficult for you to find employment. A sex crime conviction could additionally lead to mandatory sex offender registration which would expose you to major social stigma.
