I've had several clients who have face consequences at work because of criminal charges. The common example is the client charged with Driving under the Influence. However, clients facing charges such as theft of property also are facing the possibility of termination and losing professional licenses.
Be careful before pleading guilty to any crime even if a misdemeanor. If you are a professional, you may face additional consequences from your licensing board. Or if you are a student or applying for credentials you may be in a position where you are ineligible for future licensing.
