  • Seriousness and nature of the crime
  • Criminal record of defendant
    • Repeat offenders may not get the same treatment as a first offender
  • Age of victim(s)
  • And more

Common criminal penalties and practical effects associated with various crimes include the following:

  • Monetary fines
  • Prison sentences (in addition to the reinstatement of any suspended sentences on file)
  • Probation
  • Loss of employment and/or irreparable career damage
    • Which may then lead to any number of financial problems
  • Inability to volunteer at schools and other organizations
  • Travel restrictions
  • Damage to relationships with loved ones and friends
  • Loss of driver’s license
  • Loss of professional licenses (or an outright bar to obtaining certain licenses in the future)
