  • Job loss: A criminal conviction can make finding and keeping a job difficult.
  • Difficulty getting housing: Criminal records are easily accessible, and your landlord may use this information to deny you housing.
  • Difficulty getting a loan: A criminal conviction can make it difficult to get approved for a loan, even if it is for something as simple as a car or a house.
