What Does it Mean When My Charges Say, “Crimes Involving Moral Turpitude” In California?

Moral turpitude is an act or behavior which can cause a jury to look upon you as a bad person.  

If you are charged with a crime which the court considers a “crime of moral turpitude” your trustworthiness or credibility can become an issue to a court or jury or employer.

Crimes of moral turpitude can be violent, serious or theft related.

These types of crime are usually considered intolerable and

intentionally and not by accident.   Pleading guilty to this classification of crime can result in, but may not be limited to:

  • Loss of status in immigration
  • Loss of license
  • Inability to testify

If you have been accused of a crime that involves moral turpitude, you could be facing serious consequences.  At the Law Offices of Albert Perez Jr., we understand those consequences.  Give us a call so attorneys can review your facts and circumstances to develop a strategy and defense.  You need someone who’s going to fight hard for you.
