#MeToo: Morgan Freeman Fights Sexual Harassment Claims

June 5, 2018

This past year has seen Hollywood in a complete freefall over an avalanche of allegations and claims of everything from inappropriate behavior to sexual harassment to rape. Now, it seems famous actor Morgan Freeman joins the list of A-listers, who are facing allegations of bad boy behavior. Some Hollywood insiders have even alluded that Harvey Weinstein’s bad behavior was just the tip of the iceberg, and that it was just a matter of time before we saw more of our big screen heroes fall from grace.

Many are also wondering if this microcosm of social deviance afflicting Hollywood will bring out allegations and claims anywhere in society.

What Kind of Rights Can You Lose If You Are Convicted of Misdemeanor?

Certainly, a misdemeanor is a lot less severe of a charge than a felony, but having one on your record can still be a setback, especially for future employment opportunities. Here’s a list of additional impacts that can result if you are found guilty of a sexual harassment charge:

  • Doctors or teachers could end up losing their teaching credentials, and in the process their jobs.
  • A civil lawsuit could result in significant financial burden, and in some cases lead to bankruptcy.
  • A sexual harassment conviction could seriously tarnish a person’s reputation.
  • It could also lead to losing trust from significant others, such as family members or a spouse.
