Rights You Could Lose as a Felon

Those persons convicted of felony charges face much more serious penalties in regard to jail time and fines than do those whose offense are misdemeanors. Convicted felons can also lose certain rights that are otherwise guaranteed to United States citizens. Depending upon an individual's profession, lifestyle, and family life, these penalties can be particularly problematic.

If you are facing felony criminal charges, you may be worried about your future. If you are convicted of a felony, every part of your life could be greatly affected. You do not have to face this trying time alone. For aggressive legal representation, contact Austin criminal defense attorney Ian Inglis at (512) 472-1950 to discuss your case with a committed advocate.

Rights Which May Be Lost

By their nature, felonies are regarded by the legal system as being somehow more severe than their misdemeanor counterparts and the punishments are accordingly greater in the event of a conviction. That is why it is important that you have a knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. If you become a convicted felon, you could lose many rights including the following:

  • The right to purchase and own a gun or firearm
  • The right to vote while serving time in prison
  • The ability to travel internationally

Moreover, depending upon the specific details of one's case and the crime which is alleged to have been committed, there may be related consequences, such as restrictions upon where one can work or live.
