I certainly understand his situation and am sorry to hear about it. What you stated above, sounds as though Ross is seeking civil damages from him, which they have a right to do under the law. As they also stated, he could be charged criminally, if they desires to press charges. If he can not pay this all at once, he should contact them and try to get them to agree to a payment plan. They should be willing to allow this, as long as he is consistent with his payments. As far as his finding another job, it would be something which could disqualify him if he was asked to disclose if he was ever terminated and the reason why. A background check would not reveal this, unless he was charged criminally, so it would essentially be something which is at his discretion to reveal, in the event he is ever asked and never charged.
