The Consequences of a Criminal Conviction in Tampa

More than jail time alone, being convicted of a crime in Tampa could result in a revocation of your driver’s license or professional license, years’ worth of prison time, a black mark on your criminal record, the loss of custody or parenting time with your child, large fines and fees, limits on housing and employment opportunities, probationary periods, and more.
