There is an ex employee that is being accused of stealing giftcards from work.
She no longer works there because she went to another job. The owner was extremely mad that she left even though she did a formal 2 weeks notice. Her ex best friend of 12 years is now the manager of the location and there is plenty of bad water there.
They are accusing her of taking several hundred dollars of gift cards. The proof that they have is the people using the cards are family or the accused. One family me member even said she was gifted the giftcard from the exemploye. There are records that the cards were purchased in the computer
. But we think she used random numbers because the hard copy's are no where to be found.
Questions: 1 are we legally accusing her of taking the correct way?
2 if she shows a screen shot of the bank statement that she used to purchase the "stolen" cards, should that be proof enough?
3if this went to court
, how would the person accused avoid jail time.
4what proof does the employer need to bring the accused to jail
5how does she prove he is innocent if they really were stolen?
