A Largo Criminal Conviction Could Mean Significant Penalties
If you face charges and do not fight them, you could get convicted of a serious crime and face significant penalties. While the severity of the sentence will depend greatly on the crime, your previous record, and many other factors, possible penalties could include:
- Time behind bars in county jail or state prison
- Fines ranging from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars
- Driver’s license suspension
- Community service
- Restitution and other fees
- Mandated enrollment in a drug or alcohol program
Even if you do not believe the crime is serious, there could be consequences of having a conviction on your record. It could affect your ability to get some jobs or rent an apartment. It could also affect any professional licenses you hold related to your career.
If you are convicted of felony charges, the conviction could haunt you for the rest of your life, and you will have to explain it to any potential employer or landlord. Your rights could also be limited if you are a convicted felon.
It is best to avoid getting convicted, if possible. In some cases, agreeing to a lesser charge is better than facing a strong chance of conviction, though. Reach out to the criminal defense lawyers in Largo from Goldman Wetzel today by calling
