The Impacts Of A Criminal Conviction On College Students

For anyone facing a criminal charge, the outcome can greatly affect the future. This is especially true for college and high school students. A criminal record can have a number of devastating consequences for young people with their futures ahead of them. They can include:

  • Denied admission to the school of their choice
  • Denied federal student loans
  • Turned down for an employment opportunity
  • Difficulty finding an apartment
  • Difficulty obtaining lines of credit

It may be tempting to plead out to put the matter behind you as quickly as possible, but this can be a grave mistake. The true consequences of a conviction will become apparent soon enough, and you'll wish you had fought the charge or negotiated with prosecutors for the most favorable possible outcome.
