How A Criminal Case Can Affect Your Life

All criminal convictions come with some type of penalty. Even if you face a fine and a short period of probation, the conviction can follow you around and affect your life in many ways. However, many charges can result in harsh consequences, including hefty fines and loss of your freedom. Some examples of criminal penalties in Ohio include:

  • Probation;
  • Fines and court costs;
  • Loss of your driver’s license;
  • Mandatory substance abuse treatment;
  • Restitution;
  • Imprisonment;
  • Death penalty.

In addition to the above court-ordered penalties, a criminal conviction can impact your professional and educational opportunities, your social relationships, where you live, and more.
