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.

According to, you may face any number of different collateral consequences after you receive a conviction for a crime, with “collateral consequences” referring to penalties you may face that come from somewhere other than the justice system. While the exact collateral consequences you will face after receiving a criminal conviction will depend on several different factors, they can include any number of penalties that can make your life more difficult.

For example, you may not be able to run for or hold public office if your criminal charge ultimately results in a conviction, and this restriction could prove temporary or permanent. In some cases, you may be able to regain the right to run for or hold a public office once you complete your sentence. In other cases, though, you may not be able to do so, ever.

Similarly, you may find that you lose your right to vote in the wake of a Missouri criminal conviction. You may, too, find that your conviction jeopardizes your right to own or possess a firearm. You can find out more about criminal offenses by visiting our webpage.
