What Rights Does a Felon Lose? | Charleston Criminal Defense Lawyer

What rights or privileges will an
individual lose if they’re convicted of a felony? Hi, I’m
attorney David Aylor of South Carolina and I’d like to briefly go over the rights and privileges an individual will lose if they’re found guilty of a
felony. First of all, if you’re found guilty of a felony in the United States you will lose all voting privileges. As a felon you will not be able to vote.
Furthermore, you will not have any right to have
access to a gun. You cannot possess a gun at any point in
time as a convicted felon. You will also lose the opportunity to be on a jury panel for at least seven years. Furthermore you
essentially could lose any and all privileges you have as far
as professional licensing that will depend specifically on the type of felony and the licensing agency. You should
always review any potential losses if you are a licensed professional who is
looking at potentially pleading to a felony charge. However, if a
convicted felon is ultimately pardoned, then their rights
will be instilled. To go through the pardon process you
need to look specifically to the state guidelines or federal guidelines depending on where
you were convicted and what the felony was. For more information related on the
criminal process regarding felonies and pardons, as well as any other criminal
issues, you may always contact me at my office at (843) 577-5530 or on the web at DavidAylor.com Thanks for Watching.

  1. SO WHAT IS LEFT FOR A CONVICTED FELON WHEN PROFESSIONAL LICENSING IS BARD AND NO FINANCIAL, GOVERNMENT OR CORPORATION IS WILLING TO GIVE YOU A JOB OR A CAREER? FUCKING MONOPOLY THAT'S WHAT IT IS. THE INDIVIDUAL IS FORCED TO WORK IN DEAD END JOBS FOR THE REST OF HIS/HER LIFE BECAUSE THEY'RE DISENFRANCHISED FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES AND ONLY A MINIMAL OF THEM GET APPROVAL FOR THEIR RIGHTS TO BE INSTILLED. OH SURE, BUT RECENTLY THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN LEGISLATION AND THE ONLY RIGHTS YOU'LL GET BACK IS THE RIGHT TO VOTE WHICH IS PATHETIC AND SOME OTHER SHIT. FUCK THEIR VOTES! THAT'S HOW OBAMA GOT INTI OFFICE. THEY LET FELONS VOTE. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO YOU VOTE FOR. TRUMP HOWEVER IS THE PRESIDENT I WANTED VOTED IN. ALTHOUGH I STILL WILL NOT VOTE. IT'S NOT BENEFITING ME ONE BIT. I SAY FUCK THE DEMOCRATS & REPUBLICANS FUCK THE POLICE FUCK THIS PATHETIC SYSTEM. -SURE THEY "LET" US VOTE NOW BUT WE CAN'T GET A GOOD STARTING CAREER FOR OUR SELVES. ONCE MORE -MOMMA AIN'T RAISE NO FOOL.
