Thanks for the quick response. Investigations into criminal
matters are not matters of public record, so it's hard to say categorically whether you're more or less likely to be arrested for this matter and whether they are also looking at anyone other than the two people you mention as being presently under suspicion.
I'm under the belief when you're merely a suspect, that the more time that goes by with no charges filed, the better. So meanwhile, as you do have a lawyer, do not reach out to the police yourself and attempt to find out what's going on here and stir a pot that does not appear to be boiling. Just continue to go on with your life as if this didn't exist, to the extent that you can, because it may not ever amount to an arrest. And, should the police reach out to you (they probably won't if they know you've retained counse) make sure to say nothing more than " I'll have my lawyer get back to you on that," or "please call my lawyer."
On a California felony, if this embezzlement involves public funds, there is no statute of limitations, so the police can take a lifetime to investigate. If it doesn't, then depending on the level of the felony, the case would have to be brought within 3 or 6 years.
