    You best hope that the theft charges and laundering goes bye bye. If it does then you are golden.

    If not? Then you can pretty much assume that trucking does not hire those involved with such behavior or have a history of it. Because of the issue that there is a 200,000 dollar tractor trailer loaded up to a million plus in cargo and so on.

    Even if you did get branded with these charges or others, if they are felonies and you got into trucking, Canada is permanently closed to you after that. You dont even want to touch a Canada bound trailer. It's not the end of the world. Just something of a mess that will be cleaned up one way or another.

    The worst part for you I imagine is not knowing your future. Others will decide that. And that's not a good position to be in. Hang in there.
    Slowmover1 and ibcalm19 Thank this.

    Maybe so but I'll bet some of those bottom feeder companies will put him to work in the office.
    With his expertise in various kinds of financial chicanery he'd be a natural. :rolleyes:
    just_sayin, PoleCrusher, Opus and 2 others Thank this.

    Probably in the world of loss preventing. I recall a FFE dispatcher or driver manager arrested in Jackson MS for stealing money via cancelling of comchecks fairly recently. It was his second time caught doing that. The worst part of it was when he was in Lancaster it's possible he had authority over us along with the rest of the office there.

    We had a coworker involved in stealing a great deal of funds from a workplace decades ago. They put him on night shift where the proceeds were so tiny, such thieving was easily detected. I think he ended up in jail. I don't know exactly.

    Other drivers on this forum that have had money laundering charges didn't have a problem being hired after release from prison. In trucking, traffic tickets and auto wrecks are worse than felonies.

    HA! Just the thought of that makes me pucker just a little bit. Must be something in the air here in Knoxville, as I was watching on TV just down the road a couple of miles when the raided the Pilot/Flying J headquarters for all of that fuel rebate fiasco

    @Chinatown - Thank you for the incredible list of resources. It's taken me several weeks to feel like not all is lost, and there's some hope out there.
    Farmerbob1 and Chinatown Thank this.

    They did that to themselves in the J theft situation. Took in enough money, big enough and got greedy then probably began to live beyond their means and brag. They did it to themselves. If they had kept it small, they would have still been doing it to this day undetected.

    How would the history affect TWIC or Hazmat background checks?

    As I recall both had questions regarding financial crimes. Some employers require one of those and if you can't get them you will need to cross them of the list.

    I don't think financial crimes are on the disqualifying list.
    @Moose1958 is the expert on that list.
