What could happen if I am not properly defended?
There are many possible scenarios that could come about if you are not properly defended. Facing a criminal charge is a circumstance to be taken seriously and not ignored. If you have been accused of a criminal offense, you could be facing a loss or denial of employment. Many companies have multitudes of applications and resumes and they may simply disregard you if you have a criminal record.
Even if you are the perfect applicant, a criminal conviction could damage many opportunities for employment. If you have a professional license that could typically allow you to obtain work, it could be nullified. In some cases, if you have previously been granted access to classified information, your security clearance can be revoked as a result of a criminal record.
Similarly, you could face a loss of educational opportunities as a result of your criminal charge. If you are currently attending university, your student loans can be revoked, which can cause serious damage to your education.
You may also be expelled from the university or college you have been attending, which can place a hold on your educational advancement. As a driver, you may have to hand over your driving privileges, depending on your particular criminal charge. When it comes time to apply for an apartment or home rental, it is likely that other applicants will be chosen over you if you have a permanent criminal record.
How to Avoid Consequences
Citizens of the U.S. face serious consequences of criminal charges. Those who may be worse off, however, are aliens of this country. If you are in the country on a visa, a criminal offense can result in deportation or denial of naturalization. Many consequences are dependent on the situation and charge.
There are a few circumstances, however, that are more likely to result without proper legal assistance. If convicted, you will undoubtedly face jail or prison time, causing the good reputation you have developed throughout your lifetime to diminish.
Judgmental tendencies of family members and friends will probably arise and cause you to be looked down upon. At Rodriguez Lewis & Kahn, we desire to help you retain a strong reputation and prove you innocent.
