Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. It's possible that you will go to jail, but if this is a first offense, it's unlikely. Here's the law:

SECTION 16-13-230. Breach of trust with fraudulent intent.

(A) A person committing a breach of trust with a fraudulent intention or a person who hires or counsels another person to commit a breach of trust with a fraudulent intention is guilty of larceny.

(B) A person who violates the provisions of this section is guilty of a:

(1) misdemeanor triable in magistrates court or municipal court, notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 22-3-540, 22-3-545, 22-3-550, and 14-25-65, if the amount is two thousand dollars or less. Upon conviction, the person must be fined not more than one thousand dollars, or imprisoned not more than thirty days;

As the amount is under $2,000, it's a misdemeanor, and the maximum penalty is 30 days in jail. The judge has a lot of discretion in this, and if there's a good reason to keep you out of jail (supporting family, etc...) or if this is a first offense, you'll almost certainly get probation, not actually jail time.

Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable. Please note that I don't get any credit for the time and effort that I spent on this answer unless and until you rate it positively (3 or more stars). Thank you, ***** ***** luck to you!
