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
