What types of jobs can qualify as 'community service?'

Often, people who are convicted of a criminal offense are ordered to do "community service." It may be part of their sentence in addition to serving time in jail and/or paying a fine. Sometimes, an attorney can negotiate with prosecutors for a person to do community service instead of going to jail and/or paying fines.

What impact does a criminal conviction have on employment?

It can be difficult for anyone to secure gainful employment. It's especially hard for those with criminal records.

A criminal conviction sticks on a person's record for the rest of their life here.
