The consequences of a conviction extend beyond a criminal record and probation.
A conviction can affect your future, your ability to get certain jobs, find housing, and provide for your family.
Of course, that’s on top of the possibility of a prison term, probation, court costs, fines, and treatment, depending on the type of charges and your prior criminal record.
That’s especially true for felony charges.
