At the Law Group of Iowa, we understand that facing any kind of criminal offense can be a stressful, and even scary, time in a person’s life. The outcome of a criminal case can have ramifications that can follow a person for the rest of their life. A conviction can interfere with a person’s ability to seek employment, find a place to live, and obtain financial assistance. In Iowa, a person who is convicted of a felony permanently loses their right to vote unless those rights are restored by the governor.
