Does it involve moral turpitude ? Without more specific information it is difficult to answer your question.

Don't all ordinance violations involve such

No, all "ordinance violations" do not involve "moral turpitude". These type of infractions can involve something as benign as placing out your trash/garbage cans on the wrong day--even by mistake.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say no. No it's not.

Anyway, there's already been a fairly lengthy thread on this...

I agree with DeweyWins, but I remember a specific incident at a law seminar in San Diego where a female partner/instructor was horrified that one of the lawyer attendees carried a beer from the restaurant to a meeting room after dinner. The point is that to her it was offensive & unprofessional. Hopefully your offer is not from a large San Diego law firm.
