Protecting Your Future From A Criminal Charge

The impact of a DUI on a person's potential teaching career

A conviction of a criminal offense comes with various consequences, and sometimes, these consequences can follow a person for the rest of his or her life. A DUI conviction can affect a person's career path, particularly for jobs that require a person to have good moral character. However, in Pennsylvania, a person can still successfully apply to teach with a DUI conviction on his or her record. 

The state does not allow individuals to teach who have a history of inappropriate contact with a minor. In fact, there are several different types of criminal offenses that do not preclude a person from having a successful teaching career. However, it is still important for everyone, regardless of his or her career aspirations, to present a strong defense against DUI charges. A blemish on a person's criminal record can affect various areas of his or her life outside of a career.

A DUI can lead to issues with things like college admittance, intern opportunities, custody proceedings and even housing applications. A person may be able to teach in Pennsylvania with a DUI on his or her record, but there are still various other consequences that can have a negative impact on a person's life for years to come. It's smart to move forward with preparing a strong defense strategy as soon as possible.

When facing DUI charges, a person will find it beneficial to work with an experienced defense attorney. With the right guidance, it is possible to confront these charges and fight for future interests and opportunities. It may help to start with a complete evaluation of the individual case.
