How Can A Theft Conviction Impact My Future?

It is easy to underestimate the impact a theft conviction can have on your future. This is especially the case if the charge was for retail theft. The reality, however, is that theft is a crime of moral turpitude and having a conviction on your record that reflects poorly on your character – a conviction that tells people you should not be trusted – will make many aspects of life much harder to manage. Securing employment, securing a professional license and even something as simple as getting an apartment can all be complicated when someone sees theft on your record.

  • Retail theft
  • Residential burglary
  • Criminal trespass to residence
