Few people are prepared for the significant emotional challenges that arise when one is charged with a criminal offence. A criminal charge alone might cause one to lose their job, be required to move out of their house, be prevented from using the internet or a cellular phone, or be prohibited from contacting family members or friends for months or years at a time.
