If someone is facing white-collar criminal charges, they may find themselves not only defending their rights but also their reputation. An arrest alone can raise suspicions about one’s character, even if the charges are dropped at a later date. A conviction has far-reaching consequences-imprisonment, which can lead to a loss of income and jeopardize future employment prospects and driving licensures can be revoked and fines levied, straining tight finances.
Even when someone has been acquitted of the crime, they still find themselves struggling to remove the stain that has been placed on their reputation, as many people do not believe that someone is innocent until proven guilty. Even after an Ohio resident has been released from prison, he or she may find it difficult to assimilate into society as a gainful person.
This is why one must keep in mind that not only their rights are at stake, their reputations are as well. And where rights may be protected, reputations are harder to rebuild after being torn down. This is why having experienced attorneys like those at Arenstein and Gallagher by one’s side can be helpful when fighting allegations or charges revolving around white-collar crimes.
