A criminal conviction in Savannah, like in other cities in Georgia or other states, can have lasting effects. Not only can it cost you thousands of dollars in legal fees, court fees and fines, but a conviction can cost you years of your life behind bars. And, after your jail or prison term ends, you could face additional time on probation.
Unfortunately, the effects described above are not the only ways your life will change if a criminal court convicts you of wrongdoing. Your future employment prospects could also severely change after a conviction. In fact, you may learn that finding a job, especially within certain fields and industries, is incredibly difficult.
