A felony conviction could have a serious impact upon your life. The loss of your civil rights will include your right to vote, your ability to sit on a jury, and your right to own, use, or possess a firearm.
Convicted felons are often prohibited from employment in occupations involving the handling of money or valuables. A felony crime conviction can also be a significant stumbling block if you later decide to pursue a professional field of employment, such as medicine, nursing, teaching, real estate, financial services, or the practice of law.
If you are already licensed in a particular profession, a felony crime conviction could result in a review of your “character and fitness”, jeopardizing your ability to continue to work in that field.
