How Violent Crime Charges Can Derail Your Future
Violent crimes can result in harsh criminal penalties. Most are felonies, and many carry mandatory prison terms if the prosecution is able to prove the use of a deadly weapon or bodily injury to the victim.A potentially lengthy prison sentence isn’t the only consequence of a conviction. Your future will also be impacted — including your employment, housing opportunities, ability to own a firearm and reputation.
