18 Nov Your Criminal Record Is Just a Record
Having a criminal record does not mean your life is over. It means that you have made some bad mistakes in the past. The fact that you are not in prison and are living at home instead means that you handled the situation responsibly and are ready to move on. You can move on even though you have this criminal record.
Although employers, renters, banks, and others will be able to view your criminal record, they will not deny you a job, apartment, or loan. You probably know someone successful who has a criminal record, you just never knew they have one. Do not be discouraged about having a record or think that it is going to prevent you from going places. It’s not, just make sure to stay out of any more legal trouble.
