NFL policy spotlights criminal conviction's threat to livelihood

To simply acknowledge that it is a challenging matter for any individual to be accused of or criminally charged with a sex crime is sheer understatement.

Indeed, it can be an overwhelming and flatly life-altering experience.

We note on our criminal law website at the Bay Area Law Office of John W. Noonan "how serious an accusation, investigation, arrest or criminal charge involving any type of sex crime can be."

And we note an obvious corollary to that, namely, how critically important it can be for a person who is in the crosshairs of criminal officials investigating a sexual assault or other sex crime-related matter to obtain an experienced attorney to provide a zealous defense.

The potential consequences of a criminal conviction for sexual assault or other crime can be weighty to a marked degree. Obviously, lengthy incarceration is a possibility. So, too, are many other dire outcomes.

Like job loss, for example, or a denied opportunity to even pursue an employment lead.

That possibility was noted in a big way recently by news relating to the National Football League. That organization has grown highly sensitive over the past couple years to criticisms regarding some players' off-the-field activities that have led to convictions for sex crimes, domestic abuse acts and weapons infractions.

Going forward, noted a recent memo from a top league official, all such players will be barred from participating in NFL-sponsored activities. Those include skill assessment camps that have long been employed to gauge talent and have been attended by players seeking to secure employment offers from one or more teams.

The NFL states that such prohibition will apply in every case where a player has been convicted on either a misdemeanor or felony offense.
