Legal Question in Criminal Law in Minnesota

I've been at my current job for two years now. Seven months ago I received a charge of petty misdemeanor theft. Everything has been said and done and I have paid my $180 fine. My name will appear in the newspaper under convictions and I am worried that I will lose my current job because of this act if my employer sees this. Can I get fired from my job even though this instance has nothing to do with my current employer?
