    Trucking companies that hire felons
    I'm an experienced driver that got saddled with two grand larceny charges last year for hauling freight I didn't know was stolen. Is there a company that would be sympathetic to my situation and give me a job? I have no moving violatins on my mvr and it's the only crime I've ever been charged with or convicted of. PLEASE HELP!

    Hello j:

    You're not going to find a job hauling freight... It's like a banker looking for work in a bank after he got caught stealing from one. It AIN'T going to happen. There's a JILLION unemployed truck drivers out there who don't have that millstone around their necks...

    I'm afraid you won't find any major companies that will hire you with a recent felony.

    In some cases there may be a time limit, such as ten years since the conviction, where someone could be considered, but even that would depend on a variety of factors.

    I would look at perhaps dump trucks, or tow trucks, even repo trucks. Pay less, less benefits for small firms, but they may look past a conviction, but this only a year old, it is going to be tough
