Caught Shoplifting? Call for a Consult (321) 452-7055
Theft – A crime of ‘moral turpitude’
Theft not only means that your actions are scrutinized by the court but poses a threat to your career and reputation as well. With background checks common today, you face the risk of being rejected at job interviews, suspension of your driver’s license, jail time, fines, and even removal of any college scholarships. In addition, you could lose any professional or occupational license and be subject to public scrutiny when accused of theft. It doesn’t matter whether you are charged with a petty theft misdemeanor or grand theft felony; you will need an attorney to defend you.
