Though a misdemeanor might not be quite as serious as a felony, nevertheless, having a conviction for a misdemeanor may still result in some particularly negative life repercussions.

Once you have a criminal record, it becomes a record for public knowledge, and as such, it can be accessed online by anyone, including potential landlords and employers. Dependent on the work that you do, having a conviction for a misdemeanor could prove to jeopardize continued employment.

There are various forms of misdemeanor including the following:

Petty theft

There are varying aspects to petty theft inclusive of:

Theft by embezzlement: For example, should a person steal funds which have been entrusted to them for their safekeeping.
