If you have a public job or office, you could stand to lose it if convicted of certain offenses. But how do you know when you're in trouble? Which offenses cause a problem?
You need to avoid any conviction of an offense that involves dishonesty or "involves or touches upon" your public office or employment. If the crim just involves dishonesty, you will lose your job, but can have public employment in the future. If the offense "involves or touches upon" your job, you will be barred from all∫ public employment.
This is very serious and not something that you want to handle yourself. No one, especially in this economy, can afford to lose their job.
