A criminal conviction can cause lifelong consequences for a person. Generally, criminal charges, such as DWI or a violent crime, lead to very serious consequences including jail time, financial penalties and a criminal record that could affect your current or future employment, your rights, your ability to drive and even where you can live, depending on the type of conviction.
And don't dismiss the severity of non-violent crimes. Even "white collar" crimes such as embezzlement or fraud can lead to significant penalties and lengthy prison sentences.
