It is very possible that the company will not press charges because this is an internal problem which they do not want a public record for. If they choose to prosecute the theft then the charge will depend on their valuation of what a point is worth. This might also be something that they do not want publicized.
Here are some of the possibilities based on valuation
Class C Misdemeanor
Theft $50.00 or less
Class B Misdemeanor Theft $50.00 to $500.00
Class A Misdemeanor Theft $500.00 to $1500.00
State Jail Felony Theft $1500 to $20,000
felony of the third degree $20,000 to $100,000
There additional felonies for higher amounts
Here are the penalties. For a first offense you are likely looking at probation or possible deferred adjudication. You should contact a lawyer if the company decides to prosecute ( which I doubt).
Class C misdemeanor - a fine not to exceed $500.
Class B Misdemeanor - confinement for a term not to exceed 180 days in the county jail; and/or fine not to exceed $2,000.
Class A Misdemeanor - confinement for a term not to exceed one year in the county jail; and/or a fine not to exceed $4,000.
State Jail Felony - confinement for a term from 180 days to two years in a state jail; and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000.
Third Degree Felony - confinement for a term from two to 10 years in prison; and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000. Second Degree
Felony - confinement for a term from two to 20 years in prison; and an optional fine not to exceed $10,000.
