A West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney Who Defends Your Rights
Facing criminal charges is a terrifying experience. If convicted, your life may change considerably – even beyond the possibility of serving time in prison and having to pay a huge fine. Consider the following consequences of a criminal conviction in Florida:
- You will lose the right to own a firearm, with no chance of regaining this right
- You may permanently lose the right to vote
- You will not be able to get State of Florida financial aid to fund your education
- The FBI will retain records of your offense – forever
If you are an EMT, a Certified Nursing Assistant, or in another profession that requires a professional license, you might have this license revoked, which could make it very difficult to find work. And regardless of the type of job you have, it is even possible that you could lose your driver’s license, making it hard to get to work at all.
Furthermore, if convicted of a federal crime, you will be ineligible to serve in the military, travel to some countries, or apply for many federal benefits (such as pensions or annuities). This could create severe problems for you and your family later in life.
