How Criminal Convictions Can Affect Your Life
Many people do not realize the wide net that a criminal record can cast over your entire life. Here are a few examples of the potential impact of a conviction:
- A college-age student might never get accepted into the university they had been working toward for years because of something that might have to be disclosed in a college application. All of their friends might get to go away for school while they have to settle for a less prestigious college.
- When a person tries to rent an apartment, they have to disclose their criminal past or agree to a background check. Many people find it difficult to get an apartment in a decent neighborhood with a criminal record.
- Most job applications require people to disclose criminal convictions and submit to a criminal records check and background investigation. An employer is unlikely to be willing to risk the liability they might face if they hire someone with a criminal record.
- Your current employer could fire you for getting arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime.
- Your reputation might never be the same once word gets around that you got arrested or convicted. Some people relocate to another city or even a different state to try to make a fresh start, but their criminal record can catch up with them.
- If you get convicted and sentenced to time in jail or prison, it could cost you thousands of dollars in lost income. Also, you might have to pay fines and court costs.
With so much at stake, you can see why getting a criminal defense lawyer on board immediately makes sense.

Types of Criminal Defense Cases We Handle in Conroe, Texas
We have you covered with representation in these criminal defense practice areas, among others:
Assault, Including Assault on a Family Member
Often, the charge is assault family violence. When there is an argument in the family, someone might call the police and make accusations of assault with little or no evidence.
It does not take a large amount of an illegal substance to get sentenced to many years in prison in Texas.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
A police officer might testify that you failed a field sobriety test even if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) did not exceed the legal limit. In Texas, it is possible to get convicted of driving while intoxicated even if you are below the legal limit.
Records Sealing and Criminal Record Expunctions
Texas law sets the guidelines for whether we can get records sealed or have items removed from your criminal record. If you can satisfy the necessary legal factors, these actions could help you avoid years of unwanted consequences.
Getting a suspended imposition of sentence and going on probation does not mean that the original sentence disappeared. All it takes is for one judge to decide that you violated one term of your probation, and you could get arrested and go to jail on the spot. Whatever the original sentence was could be your reality unless you can successfully disprove the violation or have the original conditions of probation modified.
Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon
Carrying a weapon might be an honest mistake, like forgetting that you had a knife or firearm on you when you entered a location. Being absent-minded does not mean that you are a violent person, but other people might assume that you are dangerous if you have a weapons violation conviction on your record.
Our criminal defense lawyer is not afraid to take on the system and will work to protect your constitutional rights.
