Misdemeanor Convictions

While misdemeanor convictions do not pose nearly the issues that felony convictions pose, they often have devistating effects on a person's life. Employers often run background checks, and when they do a misdemeanor is a criminal offense that will show up in the final report. Additionally, a misdemeanor can cause issues with obtaining clearances such as a security clearance or a child care center license particularly if the misdmeanor offense involved any violent or sexual crime.
