Theft Crimes Are More Serious Than You May Think

There are four types of criminal convictions that will affect your long-term ability to obtain employment:

  • Any Felony offense
  • Sex offenses
  • Violent offenses
  • Theft offenses (often called “crimes of moral turpitude”)

I. Felony: Employers know that if they hire a convicted felon and he/she misbehaves, they are going to get sued.

II. Sex Offenses: Employers know that if they hire a sex offender, and the convicted sex offender acts improperly towards a co-worker or customer, they are going to get sued.

III. Violent Offenses: Employers know that if they hire a violent offender, and the violent offender later threatens or hits a customer or co-worker when a heated issue arises, they are going to get sued.

IV. Theft Offenses: Employers do not want employees stealing out of their cash register, so they are not going to hire someone with a theft conviction.

If you are charged with a theft crime, then you need a defense team with our record of success. Our theft defense team has been getting these types of charges dismissed and arrest records expunged since 1974.
