Theft and Larceny Charges | Impact on Future
Simply being charged with crimes like shoplifting, possessing stolen property, embezzlement, identity theft, or fraud is enough for many Buffalo employers to terminate you on the spot – ending promising careers before you even have a chance to defend yourself. Things can be even worse for immigrants working their way to permanent residency or citizenship, and students relying on scholarships or loans to complete their higher education.
