What happens if you fail to register as a sex offender?

When you receive a conviction for certain types of sex crimes in Missouri, you may have to register as a sex offender, and failing to do so can lead to considerable consequences. In addition to registering as a sex offender in the district where you reside, you may, too, need to do so in the district where you received your conviction, if they differ. If you do not register as a sex offender within the appropriate areas, and within a certain timeframe, you could potentially face a lengthy term of imprisonment.

A closer look at drug court in Missouri

Many people who commit drug-related crimes in Missouri do so because they are struggling from drug addiction, themselves. If you count yourself among them, you may be able to avoid having to serve time behind bars by doing something that can also help you kick your addiction for good. At Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, we understand that if you meet certain eligibility requirements, you may be able to enroll in drug court as an alternative to spending time in jail. While drug courts hold you accountable for your actions, they also provide you with important resources you can use to help abstain from drug use moving forward.

Can a federal drug conviction impact financial aid eligibility?

Federal drug convictions bring with them serious consequences, not all of which come directly from the criminal justice system. Depending on the circumstances and details surrounding a drug crime, a person could face a mandatory prison sentence, among other harsh repercussions. If you are a college student, your criminal act can potentially prevent you from returning to school.

Collateral consequences of a Missouri criminal conviction

When you have a Missouri criminal charge hanging over your head, it is completely understandable that you may feel anxious about the penalties you could potentially face if convicted. Hefty fines, jail stints and similar penalties are just some of what you might face, should a judge or jury convict you of a crime, and your trouble may not necessarily end there. At Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, we understand that you may, too, face what are known as “collateral consequences” in the wake of a criminal conviction, and we have helped many state residents facing criminal charges defend themselves appropriately.
