3 tips for finding a job after a felony conviction

People who face felony charges often hope that they will be able to get off of those charges. This isn't always possible. When you do have a felony on your record, you might find that it is hard to find a job. Interestingly, this might be the one time in your life when you've needed a job more than any other. This is because finding employment is often a condition of probation or parole.

Finding housing with a felony record is difficult

When you have a criminal record, you might realize that it is hard to find housing. If you own your home, you won't face this difficulty. Renters are the ones who will have trouble with housing. This is because landlords can choose not to rent to people who have criminal convictions on their records.

Parole and probation are difficult for women and juveniles

There is a vicious cycle in the criminal justice system that seems to suck some people in. The cycle keeps them in the system, moving from probation or parole back into prison and then back into the community corrections program. Getting out of the cycle takes determination and careful planning; however, some women and juveniles don't have the things they need to make the transition.

Probation isn't an easy way to resolve criminal charges

There are many different outcomes possible when you are facing criminal charges. One of the most obvious ones is that you will be found guilty and be sent to prison. There are alternatives to this that might end up being the outcome of your case if you are convicted.

Probation sentences aren't without strict rules

When a person finds out that he or she will have to serve probation instead of being sent to prison, he or she might assume that he or she got the easy way out. Certainly, probation is easier since you don't have to spend time in prison. What you must know is that probation comes with some very strict rules that you must follow.
