Violation Conviction

A person convicted of a violation may serve fifteen days in jail, perform community service, and pay a fine. In the past, a violation usually would not show up in a background check. Today, a guilty plea to a violation may be found online and with background checks. Thus, the line between a violation and a misdemeanor has started to blur, especially for violations relating to Indecent Exposure, Public Urination, and Possession of Marijuana. A conviction can still follow a person for years, causing the same problems as a misdemeanor conviction. In the increasingly scarce job market, a violation can haunt a person.
