Wikipedia

  1. convicted

    In law, a conviction is the verdict reached by a court of law finding a defendant guilty of a crime. The opposite of a conviction is an acquittal (that is, "not guilty"). In Scotland, there can also be a verdict of "not proven", which is considered an acquittal. Sometimes, despite a defendant being found guilty, the court may order that the defendant not be convicted. This is known as a discharge and is used in countries such as England, Wales, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The criminal justice system is not perfect and there are instances in which guilty defendants are acquitted and innocent people are convicted. Appeal mechanisms and post conviction relief procedures may help to address this issue to some extent. An error leading to the conviction of an innocent person is known as a miscarriage of justice. After a defendant is convicted, the court determines the appropriate sentence as a punishment. In addition to the sentence, a conviction can also have other consequences, known as collateral consequences of criminal charges. These can include impacts on employment, housing, and other areas of an individual's life. A minor conviction is a warning conviction that does not affect the defendant but serves as a warning.A person's history of convictions is known as their antecedents or "previous" in the United Kingdom and "priors" in the United States and Australia.

Examples of convicted in a Sentence

  1. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz:

    They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons. Why? Because the Democrats know convicted felons tend to vote Democrat, and so the media never reports on any of that and doesn't want to admit any of that but you can see in every one of these -- every time there's a terrible crime, they're so excited, 'Come on, please one of these be a Republican so we can try to paint the other side,' it is one of the more egregious examples of media bias but it's something we see over and over and over again.
