    5th degree theft charge, employment and college

    Jurisdiction / State: Iowa

    I have a 5th degree theft charge from 2007. It was for a bad check for under 100.00. I recently lost a job working for a company that processed checks and credit card donations to non-profit organizations. The HR manager told me that I was not able to be bonded.

    1st - can this kind of charge be expunged?

    2nd - I'm going to be attending college in August 2012 to obtain an A.A. degree in Business Management. Will I be able to be gainfully employed in this area of employment with this on my record?

    Talk to a local Attorney but I believe the crime must be at least 7 years old. I could be wrong so consult an Attorney

    What can and cannot be expunged, and if so when it can be expunged, is state specific and you did not list your state.
