The impacts of having a drug offense on one's record

There are many different things that being charged with drug offenses has the potential to impact. One is a person's permanent record, as a person can end up with a significant stain on their record if they are ultimately convicted of drug crimes.

Does the condition of a person's permanent record really matter that much? The answer to this question is a big yes. It is very important to not underestimate how impactful having drug offenses on one's record can be. It can end up touching many aspects of a person's life.

For one, having a marred record due to a drug offense conviction can limit a person's options on where they can live. This is because what a person's record is like can have impacts on things like their ability to rent certain apartments or obtain a home loan.

Losing a clean record can also be harmful to a person's employment prospects, as having a marred record can sometimes keep a person from being able to get certain jobs or professional licenses.

Thus, having the sort of future one wants can be made much more difficult if one has drug charges on one's record.

The potential record implications are among the many reasons why a lot can be hanging in the balance for a person when they are facing drug charges. Our firm understands how much a drug crime defendant's future can be impacted by what happens in their case, and we work hard to help the defendants we represent try to find resolutions to their situation that will keep their future protected. Our drug offense page has further information on our drug crimes defense practice.
