How Will My Future Be Affected?
Question: How Will Being Convicted Of A Sex Crime In Wisconsin Affect My Future?
Answer: If a person is convicted of some kind of sex crime, their future is going to change and it’s not going to be for the better. Sometimes, you can be convicted of a misdemeanor sex crime such as sexual contact without consent. That in Wisconsin will remain visible on the state court website for the next 20 years. And people will look at it. And they won’t say, “It’s a misdemeanor, no big deal,” or “He got probation, no big deal.” They’ll say, “He committed a sexual assault.” And they won’t tell you they know that, but when you go to apply for a job they’ll find it even though they won’t be allowed to ask you about it because it’s a misdemeanor.
