Potential consequences of conviction include large fines and possibly even jail time. Individual college or technical school rules vary, but if you have a scholarship award or grant, you or your child could potentially lose your scholarship or financial award if convicted of a felony. You could even get kicked out of school. A criminal conviction could also inhibit future professional licensure.
In both Indiana and Kentucky, some criminal and traffic offenses are “enhanceable” offenses. . An enhanceable offense means that a conviction for a first-time offender can be used in the future against that person to make a second offense more serious. Accordingly, the penalties and consequences associated with conviction of the crime you’ve been accused of committing increase greatly.
Right now, that means it is usually a bad decision to plead guilty to even a minor criminal or drug offense. There could be severe ramifications down the road. In many cases, we may be able to reduce the charges against you or eliminate them entirely in exchange for alternative rehabilitation programs or other diversionary programs.
Our experienced attorneys can also assist with expungement of records for criminal and traffic offenses, especially if you have only one conviction.
