Criminal penalties can be substantial and they may vary depending on the seriousness of the crime allegedly committed, criminal history, and other factors. Common penalties issued to those who are convicted may include the following: jail/prison time, substantial fines, court costs, probation, driver’s license suspension, and more. People who are convicted will also have a criminal record that will probably impact employment, housing opportunities, and more. For those convicted of less serious types of crimes, the most detrimental punishment of all is the negative impact on reputation, job losses and career. Depending on then nature of the crime, offenders may lose a professional license, or be required to register as a sex offender where all their neighbors and friends can see.
