What Can Happen if I’m Convicted of a Felony?

A conviction can cause consequences that may negatively affect your way of life now and in the future. Ohio Revised Code provides a range of consequences for each offense, which include a minimum and maximum sentence (re: incarceration time frame), community sanctions, and potential fines. The ranges specified are guidelines the court uses to decide the final disposition based on the proceedings of your case. The possible consequences determined in your case are normally the beginning of issues that may continue to affect your life. 

Some related problems are:

  • Loss of job
  • Loss of property
  • Loss of driver’s license
  • Loss of residence
  • Loss of privacy
  • Loan refusal
  • Inability to seal record or juvenile record
  • Loss of family (or limited contact with family)
  • Loss of the right to own or carry a firearm
  • Inability to volunteer with youth or state-ran program
  • Difficulty finding job
  • Higher likelihood to re-offend
  • Inability to vote
  • Refusal to update licensure
  • Expulsion from school
  • Job application rejection
  • Inability to operate a daycare facility, become a bondsman, or practice law
  • Possible PTSD
  • Ineligible from serving as the personal representative or executor of a deceased person’s estate

Employers in Ohio have the right to terminate your employment based on a criminal conviction. If you are employed with organizations that require a security clearance, serve the public, or conduct background checks, then a conviction for certain offenses will most likely disqualify you from retaining your current position.

To limit or eliminate the negative effects of a criminal conviction, we suggest you reach out to an attorney with the knowledge and desire to defend your rights by creating a specified defense plan tailored to you and your case.
