From the moment a crime is committed to the moment that you complete serving your sentence for a crime it makes sense that negative consequences are faced. When you are first arrested, your rights to do what you want and go where you want are removed temporarily. After being convicted of a crime, you may be sent to prison and have your freedom removed.
When you get out of prison after serving your time, you might think that is the end of the negative consequences you will face. Unfortunately, having a criminal record makes it so that you are not employable by many companies and may have trouble renting an apartment. The only way to get rid of these consequences is by expunging convictions that are on your record through legal avenues.
