Students in Michigan like your child may not be aware of the long term impacts of having convictions on their record. At the Law Office of Gary Michael Gabry, we work to keep both you and your child informed of the possible consequences of convictions and how they could impact the overall prospects of both education and work in your child's future.
Anyone who is convicted of a criminal charge will face certain long term repercussions for it, even if they're just a student. In the case of your child, they could find it more difficult to get into their school of choice. This is particularly pertinent for those who intent to go to medical school. However, all colleges consider certain convictions to be potential grounds for turning down an application.
Additionally, applying for loans can be a hassle. Even if your child leaps over that first hurdle and gets accepted, they may not be able to afford attending college because no one will give them a loan. This can negatively affect chances of employment, though your child's job prospects can lessen just by having one criminal conviction on their record, no matter what type of conviction it is.
If you want to take a closer look at the long term impacts that a crime can have on your child's future, take a look at our web page. We highlight many different types of crimes and degrees of severity among those crimes. These detailed looks can help your child understand what they may lose if they're dealing with the possibility of a criminal conviction.
