Penalties for Criminal Convictions in New York

The New York State criminal justice system is not well-known for being lenient and forgiving. If you have been accused of any sort of crime, you need to know that much more than a mark on your criminal record is on the line. A conviction for an infraction, misdemeanor, or felony charge could have far-reaching and permanent consequences that negatively impact multiple facets of your day-to-day life.

Consequences of receiving a criminal conviction may include:

  • Steep fines: The state can take thousands of dollars from you for something as simple and arguably innocuous as a drug possession violation. You may lose even more in fees you need to pay back to the state, such as court costs and processing expenses.
  • Jail or prison time: An infraction could land you in jail for several days if you cannot post bail; misdemeanors might lock you up for months to a year; and by definition, a felony will put you in state prison for at least a year, usually with a mandatory minimum sentence that cannot be shortened.
  • Probation: Even after you have served your time and paid your fees, a criminal sentencing usually continues with a lengthy probation period. During probation, you may have to make routine meetings with a probation officer, costing you, even more, time and money. You will also be put on "watch" for other suspicious behavior.
  • Employment loss: Many employers will not allow you to continue working there after a criminal conviction, especially if it is drug related. If you do not have a job, interviewers are generally instructed to ask about previous convictions and weed out anyone who has one on their record.
  • A lessened standard of living: Your reputation among the people with whom you regularly interact is sure to be damaged by a criminal conviction. In some circumstances, you may be stripped of educational opportunities or have to relocate to another home.
