New York Misdemeanors Come With Hidden Consequences that May Follow You for Life
By: Kenneth S. Feraru, Esq.
There are collateral consequences, or “hidden penalties” that could result from a criminal conviction. An incomplete list of consequences include one’s ability to qualify for certain loans, licenses, ability to rent apartments or houses, could result in deportation, and could prevent one’s ability to own firearms. And, there could be additional consequences! These consequences are something that can occur even if you never spend a moment in jail. They are harmful and can follow you for your entire life.
In the short term, this may not mean much; it may seem like the easy way out. But for many, the effect of blindly taking a plea results in serious problems in the future.
This is why it’s imperative to retain an attorney who understands these potential pitfalls, and who will work to aggressively get you an outcome that can eliminate or greatly reduce these kinds of consequences. Usually, this can generally be handled very affordably.
If you are facing misdemeanors such as: DWI, assault, petit larceny, drug possession, driving on a suspended/revoked license, and many other crimes, it is imperative you get legal advice as soon as possible. Do not attempt to resolve this on your own.
