A Theft Crime Conviction Can Ruin Your Life

All criminal convictions are bad, but a theft crime conviction can be particularly negative. Theft crimes are considered “crimes of moral turpitude,” which means it reflects negatively on your character. In addition to the standard criminal penalties like fines and jail time, a conviction of a crime of moral turpitude on your permanent record is an instant red flag for potential employers, landlords, schools and anyone else who could have a decisive influence on your future. It can also impact your immigration status if you are not a full US citizen. You need to avoid a conviction at all costs.
