What Are The Consequences Of Misdemeanor And Felony Charges In Georgia?
In the case of a misdemeanor, you may be facing up to a year in jail and/or fines, probation or other penalties, such as community service, house arrest, anger management programs, substance abuse programs, restitution to victims and more.
In the case of a felony, you may be facing a prison term of more than a year as well as heavy fines.
In either case, a conviction will result in a permanent criminal record that can be detrimental to future opportunities. Criminal records are accessible through routine background checks, which means that they are available to future landlords, employers and loan agencies. A criminal record can also affect your professional license and make it difficult to obtain a new one in the future. Lastly, if you are not a citizen, you may face immigration consequences for certain criminal convictions as well.
