Thank you for your patience. I'm sorry to hear about what your dad is going through.The company is very likely looking at reporting the matter to police, which means your father could get arrested - or at the very least, I would expect police to be contacting him. Therefore, he would need a criminal defense attorney. This could be charged as grand larceny in New York, a Class D felony, which while there is no minimum mandatory sentence, is punishable by jail time ranging from 2-7 years in prison.Your father is not under any obligation, if contacted by police, to speak to someone. In fact, it's best he NOT answer any questions or put anything in writing before speaking with a criminal lawyer first.
