I may be getting charged (not sure if that's the correct term)

I may be getting charged (not sure if that's the correct term) for misappropriation of company property (fraud, larceny, embezzlement not sure which applies). I know there was a large contingency of my old company in a meeting to today at a customer that would've been affected and people I know there have been oddly quiet. I am out of state supporting my dad during a surgical procedure with my expected return home to be late Sunday night. My questions are if the result of this meeting was an intent to charge me, how/when will it happen? Police will serve me or arrest me? Police are actively pursuing me and I don't even know it? My wife and kids won't know anything about this. So should I immediately get home?Thank you for your help.

My stepson pleaded guilty, in November 2015, to one count of

My stepson pleaded guilty, in November 2015, to one count of CSC 3 in Michigan (the other 5 counts were dropped). The plea deal involved that he plead guilty and in return he accepted a 1-15 year sentence with the possibility of parole after 1 year (he is currently incarcerated at a MDOC facility). Three computers and three cell phones were confiscated as evidence from his home. His wife had no knowledge of the crime.The State of Michigan sent him paper work threatening to seize 90% of his assests. His wife and two children are still currently living in the house. The house has about $30,000 in equity. They have essentially no other money or real property. But they do have $20,000 in credit card debt and a student loan.I loaned him $230,000 and he has repaid me about $103,000 of that from his 401K's.I live in Florida.1. Does the State of Michigan have any legal right to his assests?2. Is the money he repaid me in any jeopardy? The balance of $127,000 I had to refinance with my existing mortgage. (I have POA for him and a notorized promissory note for the $200,000 of the total amount).Ron

This has to do with appealing a sentence after plea

Hi,This has to do with appealing a sentence after plea agreement.A business owner I know was charged with a federal crime (NC Western District), signed a plea agreement, plead guilty, and was just given a prison sentence. I am certain he is innocent, and that he plead guilty under duress.A lot of money was stolen from customers (they sent money but never got orders), and the owner was charged (wire fraud). The money actually went to an employee that embezzled from the company and had nearly complete control of the company. I believe the owner feared retaliation from the embezzler if he did not plead guilty. The embezzler is likely being investigated, but nothing about the embezzlement is mentioned in the charges against the owner. The owner's attorney and judge likely did not know. However, the U.S. Attorney either knew or should have known.The owner also very likely would have had a good faith defense (e.g. over the time he ran the business, 99% of customers got their orders, and when he regained control he immediately cut his salary and looked into ways of orderly shutting down the company when he regained control).Here is what I am hoping to find out: How many days would he have if we was willing to appeal? If he did appeal, about how much time might it buy him before he had to state what happened? Is there a way to avoid going to jail while an appeal is processing? If he was unwilling to appeal, for fear of his safety, are there any other options that might prevent him from going to jail?Thank you in advance for any information you may be able to provide.
