How long ago did you take the money? How do you know for sure that he was aware you took it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I took it for about 3 years. I am the majority owner. We discussed it.
Expert:  Zoey, JD replied 1 year ago.

If you discussed it and he was aware of it, he really doesn't have a criminal case against you, as you arguably took it with his permission and authority.

Additionally, if you stopped taking the money more than 3 years ago, the case would now be too old to be prosecuted in Pennsylvania.
