The Lasting Impact of a Criminal Conviction

Under North Dakota law, misdemeanor offenses can still have serious consequences. A misdemeanor offense can result in jail time (typically less than one year) and serious monetary fines. Those convicted of a misdemeanor offense may also be subjected to community service hours or other forms of punishment. However, a conviction can stay with you long after these punishments have been served.

A misdemeanor conviction stays on your record and can impact:

  • Your ability to get and keep a job. Some employers request disclosure of such convictions or conduct their own background checks.
  • School applications. Many school programs will consider an applicant's criminal record before admission.
  • Military service. Acceptance into many government roles, including military service, is subject to criminal background checks.
  • Firearms. Subject to background checks to own or possess a firearm.

Having an experienced Minot criminal defense attorney at Rowenhorst Law work with you after you have been charged with a crime is an important first step to limiting the damage that a conviction can cause.
