Being convicted of a crime can affect your life in many ways. Depending on the crime, you will likely have to pay fines, fees and court costs, and may serve jail time. Beyond that, though, are many serious consequences that aren’t immediately obvious.
If you have a job, a criminal conviction may cause you to lose it. A conviction also makes it more difficult to find new employment. Being convicted of a crime can make you ineligible for certain government benefits and may take away your voting rights. In addition, a conviction can strain or damage your relationship with your loved ones and friends.
