Extreme Consequences

The majority of people arrested at the Coachella, Desert Trip or Stagecoach Music Festival, even those arrested for serious offense such as drug sales, have no criminal record and have never been in trouble with the law before.

It also can subject you have a felony conviction which could result in loss of employment, denial of professional licensing, and exclusion from future employment, loss of college scholarships or even the opportunity to be part of a collegiate team or continued acceptance at most higher education colleges and universities.
