Good afternoon. A lot depends on the evidence which the company has and if it is enough for the police to arrest and charge you and then turn the case over to the State for prosecution. I say this because they may have though you were involved with the theft but have no real evidence. If that is the case, they may decide and go after you civilly, since the burden of proof is much less, if they want to try and recover whatever was taken. The pending legal matter could be wither civil or criminal and technically, until the statute of limitations run, you could be prosecuted or sued.
