Consequences of a Felony Conviction in Arizona

Consequences of a felony conviction can have a very negative impact on many aspects of your life. In Arizona, there are six (6) classes of felonies. A class six (6) felony is the least serious, with a class one (1) felony being the most serious. A felony is usually defined as a crime that is punishable by imprisonment for more than a year, or a crime that is punishable by death or a prison sentence served in a state penitentiary.

There are many potentially negative consequences of a felony conviction including mandatory fines, classes, jail, probation, community service, and possible prison. Other consequences of a felony conviction may include:

Losing the right to possess a firearm
Losing the right to possess a weapon
Losing the right to vote in elections
Becoming ineligible for immigration
Becoming ineligible for elected office
Becoming ineligible for professional licenses
Becoming ineligible for housing
Becoming ineligible to serve as a juror
Becoming ineligible for public benefits
Becoming ineligible for educational benefits
Negatively impacting parental rights
Negatively impacting divorce proceedings
Loss of present and future employment
Credit denial
Loan denial
Having a Criminal Record
Having to register for a criminal registry
Being tested and registered for a DNA data base
Negative social stigma

In Arizona, another consequence of a felony conviction is that it may result in the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) revoking your driver's license. Sometimes this revocation can be for several years. A revoked license means you cannot drive until your license is re-instated. If your license is revoked, you are not eligible to apply for re-instated driving privileges until the revocation period has elapsed. Driving while your license is revoked is a crime that can lead to additional periods of suspension, revocation and jail time.
