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
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.
