Consequences of Arrest for a Crime

After a person is arrested, life can become very difficult for him, as well as for his family. If you are charged with a crime, it is essential that you have a dedicated and aggressive Sugar Land criminal defense attorney in your corner.

Short- and Long-Term Consequences of Arrest

There are many short- and long-term consequences of an arrest. While the courts may say that one is "innocent till proven guilty," even the appearance of criminal charges can drastically alter a person's life. Suspicion may cause others to act differently around him and lead to relationships being altered and anger being misplaced.

If, for example, someone is accused of manslaughter for a hit and run, even if there is no proof, emotions may cause the victim's family to see an arrest as a sign of definitive guilt. Misplaced anger and the need for answers can create a complicated situation that may have a negative impact on every aspect of the victim's life. Jobs can be lost, relationships can be changed, and everyday life can become a nightmare.
