Violent Crimes

A Conviction can Permanently Damage Your Reputation

Violent crimes consistently get the most coverage in local and national news, and even in fictional television shows such as Law & Order. Why is that? It may be because society finds these crimes terrifying and morally reprehensible. As a result of how these crimes are talked about on TV, most people assume that individuals convicted of violent crimes are unpredictable or treacherous. This means that a conviction can permanently damage your reputation.
