Criminal law (or penal law) is the body of rules with the potential for severe impositions as punishment for failure to comply. A criminal punishment, depending on the office and jurisdiction, may include jail or prison time, and/or parole and probation with heavy costs and fines. A criminal conviction can affect the rest of your life; it may and can stay on your record forever. A criminal charge will affect your job, your credit, your education and your possible future relationships. Employers conduct background checks on potential employees and the decision to hire may be affected. With the proper representation your potential for permanent harm can be reduced or even eliminated.
The law has recently changed, allowing for a single criminal expungment after only five years have passed from the date of the conviction, or the discharge of probation or the release from prison, whichever is later. Some convictions are not expungable from public records. Knowing if your charge is expungable can open up doors and make a world of difference. Call today to see if your situation qualifies for an expungment.
