Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction
There is a lot at stake for a person facing a domestic violence accusation. Beyond the problems created by protective orders and the disruption to your normal way of life, a conviction to a domestic violence charge could negatively impact your life in many ways.
If you are being accused of domestic violence, no matter how insignificant the incident may seem, take the accusations seriously and contact an experienced defense lawyer. At the law firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates, we have represented clients throughout the Cincinnati area and Southwest Ohio in a variety of domestic violence matters.
Loss of Your Right to Carry a Gun
It is unlawful for a person convicted of domestic violence to possess or carry a firearm. Even if you have a conceal and carry permit or carrying a weapon is part of your job, the law prohibits you from having one. Once you have been convicted, you will never be able to restore your right to carry a gun. Obviously, a domestic violence conviction has drastic consequences for people working in law enforcement.
No Expungement for Domestic Violence Matters
A conviction for domestic violence cannot be expunged from your criminal record. This means that, once you have been convicted, it will be on your record for the rest of your life. Having a conviction on your record can hurt you in many different ways. It can prevent you from getting a job, applying for certain licenses, obtaining credit and many others.
