Being charged with a crime can affect many areas of your life. It affects:
- Your relationship with your significant other
- Your relationship with your friends and family
- Your ability to own firearms
- Your ability to find and maintain a job
Having a charge against you can affect your ability to find work for the rest of your life. Even if you don’t initially lose your job because of a charge, you may still lose your job as a result of missing too many days of work while you are in court or serving your sentence.
If you are convicted of certain offenses, you may also be excluded from certain lines of work, which can limit your financial advancement in the future. You may also be excluded from getting certain permits or business licenses. If you already have a business license, such as a plumbing license, you may lose it or have to reapply for it at the end of your sentence.
