Life After a Felony Illinois

A felony is a very serious offense in the U.S., so after serving your sentence, your life will encounter some obstacles. The felony will be on your record, so convicted felons have trouble when seeking employment. Recently, Illinois has been attempting to assist convicted felons. In 2013, Governor Pat Quinn signed legislation, commonly referred to as “ban the box”, which does not allow employers to ask job seekers for their criminal history on job applications.

Felony convictions can determine if you qualify for federal assistance for student loans, but this status is also changing. In addition, if you have been convicted of a felony for a drug offense, you will be prohibited from filing for Federal Assistance, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or welfare.

In Illinois, once sentenced, convictions cannot be expunged for any criminal offense, whether a misdemeanor or felony. Under the right circumstances, some records for misdemeanors, specifically Class 3 and Class 4 felonies, may be sealed.
