You will loose your job mainly if you are convicterd in the criminal case. Mere arrest may entitle you to be suspended. However, since your case is one of contract, after contractual period, your service can be terminated.

You have not said wether in your criminal case you have been acquitted or not anyways this will not hamper your job in any way until and unless if there is a specific declaration clause before u had joined your job or even it is the clause of your work company that you will have to inform your company wether you have to declare any criminal case against you
Otherwise no employer can generally throw you out of your job only because you had a criminal cas in past.
Thank you
