Criminal Convictions Hurt College Students Later in Life

Are you a college student in Wisconsin who has been charged with a crime? Is your son or daughter facing a felony or misdemeanor conviction on their record? If the charges lead to a conviction, that seemingly innocent mistake in college at a party or football game could haunt him or her later in life.

Employers now screen job applicants carefully. Background checks include searching criminal records. If you have a conviction on your record, employers take this very seriously as an indication of what kind of employee someone will be. Even a minor infraction marring your background check could be grounds for rescinding a job offer.
