If, for example, you are accused of stealing something worth less than $50, you will be charged with a class C misdemeanor. But if you are charged with stealing something worth $200,000 or more, you will be charged with a first degree felony.

The Negative Effects of a Theft Conviction on Your Career

White collar crimes are common theft crimes that involve deception and are usually non-violent. These crimes take place mostly in a business or financial setting. If you are convicted of a theft crime, you will face likely penalties such as:

  • Jail times
  • Fines
  • Restitution

A theft crime can be enhanced from a misdemeanor to a felony if it is alleged that you used force in the act.

Theft crime convictions can adversely affect you for the rest of your life. Because theft is considered a crime of moral turpitude, employers tend to view applicants with theft convictions negatively. Licensing boards, government agencies, and other employers who perform background checks may be deterred from hiring you if you have a theft conviction on your record.
