Thank you for the additional information. The burden is on the State Attorney to prove the charge against you beyond a reasonable doubt. They are going to have to show you obtained the credit card information or knew he had obtained it and used it to pay your bills. The fact that supervisor confirmed and can testify on your behalf that you would not be able to access this information through your position, is testimony
which can be used to help and support your defense. In addition, you can take the stand and testify on your on behalf and explain to the jury, what happened. Seeing how you are a first time offender and this is a non-violent crime, it is unlikely that the State would seek any jail time if you were willing to take a plea or if the Judge had to sentence you if found guilty. While jail or prison is possible, the court may be more inclined to impose a probationary sentence and ask that restitution
be paid. The decision is entirely up to you, if you want to fight this and go to trial or take a plea and resolve it. If you take a plea and the State offers you a withhold of adjudication
, it would not be a conviction but would appear on your record.
