I cannot enter into an attorney client relationship, this is a public forum, and all posts are available for public viewing. There is no duty of confidentiality that attaches to any posts. The information provided is not a substitute for a local attorney’s legal advice.
So say she paid back like $500 - could he still file charges against her for the full $900? How long would a misdemeanor stay on her record and how would it affect her future employment opportunities?
So just so I'm clear - even if she pays it all back, she can still be charged with the crime? So she is at the mercy of the employer being a good guy and doing what he says not to report until the statute runs out? and even having an agreement or a paid in full notice could not prevent her being charged with a crime? If this is her first offense, is it likely if the employer did file after she paid off, would judge consider lowing charge because she did pay back and the employer even said he wouldn't press if she paid hold any weight for something in the context of a criminal proceeding?
Sorry to keep on - but I don't want her charged either but I don't necessarily trust employer to live up to his end. Can the employer black ball her by talking to other restaurant owners about his employees' theft? Thanks for your help.
