Anyone charged with a criminal offense faces a multitude of issues that will affect his or her future employment, housing, and credit rating. For example, if you apply for a job, the employer has the right to run a background check. Even if your case is closed, the employer is not obligated to hire you. Another example occurs when you apply to move into an apartment or condominium complex where the owner or Association runs a background check. Even if the case is closed and you are serving probation, you may be prevented from living in a place of your choice.
