The long-term consequences of a criminal record

When accused of a crime, many people become worried about the possible consequences that a conviction will have in the near future. For example, they may worry about being subject to a fine, being banned from participating in a certain activity (such as driving) for a certain amount of time or about the effect that the conviction will have on their reputation.

While short-term consequences should not be underestimated in response to a criminal accusation, it is important that you also think about the long-term consequences that a criminal record can have. The following are some of the long-term effects of criminal records.

Child custody can be affected

If you are a parent, you may run the risk of losing custody rights as a result of your criminal record. In general, violent crimes can serve as evidence that you pose a risk to your child.

Your career can be affected

If you have a criminal record, this can prevent you from gaining certain jobs. This can have a profound effect on your life because it can stop you from having the same income and quality of life that you enjoyed before you were convicted of a crime.

Your past will be taken into account during sentencing

Having a prior criminal record can have an impact on the consequences of any crimes that you commit in the future.

If you are facing criminal charges, planning a compelling defense strategy could help you avoid being convicted. Therefore, you should take the time to understand how the law works and take action as soon as possible.
