The Long-Term Consequences of a Criminal Conviction are Costly

man rubbing his wrist arms between jail cell bars | Long-Term Consequences of a Criminal ConvictionIf you have been charged with a criminal offense in Boulder, Colorado, it is important that you act quickly. It is naive to simply hope your charges will go away on their own—and it almost never happens. The police will not be concerned with giving you time to secure legal representation, rather they will be actively investigating your offense from the moment you are a suspect. Facing criminal charges is both difficult and stressful—even more so, if you are attempting to handle your charges on your own. And the long-term consequences of a criminal conviction can be very steep.

Consequences of a Criminal Conviction Can Reach Far Beyond Criminal Penalties

Depending on the criminal offense you are charged with, you could face jail, prison, probation, fines and fees, and/or mandatory drug or alcohol programs or counseling. You could also find yourself facing the following consequences if you are convicted of the crime you are being charged with:

  • You could find your reputation in your community damaged beyond repair;
  • You could lose your driving privileges;
  • You could find it difficult to obtain employment due to a permanent criminal record;
  • You could be unable to obtain a professional license;
  • You could lose your right to own a firearm;
  • You could find it difficult to find housing;
  • You could be barred from obtaining a federal student loan for college, and
  • You could be prohibited from owning a firearm.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty?

While the underlying principle of the American justice system is that you are innocent until proven guilty, unfortunately many people—including friends, family and co-workers—may assume you are guilty until your criminal defense attorney can definitively prove your innocence. The primary way you can prove your innocence is to have a solid alibi—if our attorneys can prove you were somewhere else at the time, reasonable doubt has been established. If you did commit the crime, perhaps you were acting in self-defense, you were temporarily unable to distinguish between right and wrong, you were under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, or you were a victim of entrapment by law enforcement. Whatever your situation, we can help.
