1. Felony Convictions are Forever Felonies can lead to significant time in prison, anywhere from 5-30 years, and come with a large fine up to $20,000. If you find yourself convicted of a felony, this record will stay with you forever. If you find yourself convicted again later on down the road, you could also be facing a harsher punishment the second time around. 2. Convicted Felons Face Many Challenges If you're convicted of a felony, you could have trouble after the fact with the following:
buying or renting a home
being approved for insurance
getting a professional license
lose your right to vote
cannot carry a firearm
This type of conviction can and will lead to a lifetime of consequences.

If you driving while intoxicated, this violation can be punished to the full extent of the law. If you are found guilty this offense will stay on your record forever. 4.
