To be fair, most people that are charged with repeat misdemeanor offences are suspended from their jobs for over 3 months.
/end sarcasm. Just in case it wasn't picked up on.
I don't know what your situation is but I hope you are not a college student who has been arrested. I have worked for four different employer
s and anyone of them would have fired anyone with two arrests within 12 months. Especially if meeting with probation officer had to be done during work hours, which it usually does.
Nowadays employers are obsessed with arrest records. Employment applications don't want to just know whether you were convicted or adjudicated, they want to know whether you have been arrested. I guarantee you that an arrest record almost automatically gets you thrown off the interview list. Even if that doesn't happen, if two applicants are even in most ways but one has an arrest record, that is the one that will not be hired. Fact of life!
