In addition, the criminal record could prevent pursuit of employment or sideline a promising career.

A conviction of petty theft could result in up to one year in jail and a fine of $1,000 for a first-degree misdemeanor. With that in mind, we provide personalized representation and focus on the specifics of your theft case. In many cases, a first-time offense can be resolved through community service, probation, and restitution. In addition, avoiding future legal trouble could result in a sealing of your record or expungement of the criminal charge.
Keeping your record clean is vital in a job search. Many employers will ask about a criminal record. Knowing that a theft charge or conviction is on your record forces you to answer "yes." While honest, your admission could lead to a rejection of your application, particularly if the position applied for involves a license.
