Call Our Pullman Criminal Defense Attorneys Today
When you are convicted of a crime in Washington, the judge may sentence you to fines, jail time, probation, or a number of other punishments. While these punishments typically come to an end, the conviction itself carries a number of “hidden” penalties that can impact your rights for the rest of your life.
If you’ve been previously convicted of a felony, our firm may be able to help restore your rights and help you return to life as normal. Not everyone qualifies for vacation of conviction or restoration of rights, but our Pullman criminal defense lawyers will work tirelessly on your behalf when you hire our firm.
If you have a past conviction, we may be able to help you take control of your life. Call our firm 24/7 at (509) 593-4370 to get started.
Am I Eligible for Vacation of Conviction?
In order to have your conviction vacated, you first must meet a large number of requirements. This includes completing your original sentence, as well as having a satisfactory period of time without new criminal conduct.
- There are some crimes which cannot be vacated, including:
- Violent felonies, such as murder, kidnapping, arson, etc.
- Crimes against children or vulnerable adults
- DUI offenses
Why Should I Seek Post-Conviction Relief?
When you are convicted of a felony in Washington, you will automatically lose the right to vote in local, state, and federal elections. You also lose your right to own and carry a firearm for any reason, including home defense and hunting. Depending on the circumstances of your case, our Pullman criminal attorneys can help you seek a restoration of these rights.
However, these are far from the only consequences that can be alleviated through post-conviction relief. Perhaps the biggest challenge faced by convicted individuals is the difficulty they face in getting a job, and they also may struggle to receive certain student loans. Equally disturbing is the fact that many reformed individuals find it very difficult to even find a place to live.
