What type of crimes are employers less likely to overlook?

If you have a criminal record, you may worry about your employability in Missouri. Recent findings, published in an article by the Society for Human Resource Management, however, indicate that worry you should not. With unemployment at a 17-year low at just 3.9 percent, and with a third of the workforce holding a criminal record of some sort, employers realize that they must broaden their horizons if they hope to hire top talent and remain competitive. For many, broadening the horizon means hiring convicts.

Consequences for harboring someone with a warrant

When a federal court charges a Missouri resident with the crime of accessory, it does so because that person either helped someone commit a crime or provided emotional, physical or financial assistance post-crime. Physical assistance includes concealment. The law refers to concealing someone after he or she has committed a crime as "harboring a fugitive." Harboring a fugitive is a federal offense and is punishable as such.

INTERESTED IN CLEANING UP YOUR CRIMINAL RECORD?!

On January 1, 2018, the new Missouri expungement law becomes effective that will allow persons who have been arrested, pled guilty or even convicted of certain criminal offenses have these matters expunged from their permanent record.

What happens at the first hearing after charges are filed?

You have been charged with a crime. However, it is your first run-in with the law. What happens next? What are your options? If you do not understand the criminal justice process, it may help to read on. It all begins with the first appearance.

Employing entrapment to defend against federal drug charges

It all boils down to this: you may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. As a kid, indiscretions may have led you to form relationships with unsavory individuals. While you may consider those interactions to be anchored firmly in the past, it's possible that others still mark you as vulnerable due to those associations.

Erasing past mistakes through expungement

Having a criminal record can put you at a decided disadvantage in many ways. Disclosing an arrest or conviction is often required, but it can make you lose out on career, housing and educational opportunities. A criminal record can also cost you big in the workplace: research indicates that those with a criminal history have a more difficult time finding jobs, and may be paid between 10 and 40 percent less for the same work than otherwise similarly situated co-workers.
