Theft & Fraud Cases in Maryland
The consequences of pleading guilty to a theft charge are much more serious than a fine and possible jail time. Maryland has a criminal case website that employers often use to find out if a prospective employee has a criminal history. If you have a theft conviction, many employers will not consider hiring you over someone who has a clean record.
