Fight against felony charges to avoid the felony label

It is no secret that people who face criminal charges in federal court face an uphill battle. For some people, the effects of charges that are placed against them in federal court follow them around for life. Think about the effects of a felony conviction. Felons lose some of their rights, such as the right to bear arms and the right to vote. Of course, those consequences aren’t absolute.

A former Illinois governor, George Ryan, has said that ex-convicts shouldn’t be labeled as felons. While that sounds like a good idea to people who are currently facing felony charges, the idea hasn’t caught on yet. People who are convicted of felony charges are labeled as felons for life. The one way to avoid that is to be found innocent of felony charges or to have the charges dropped.
