Welcome, and thank you for your question.
I'm afraid one will have to wait until the sentence is handed down by the employer before one can decide on the appropriate further course of action.
Once it is known, please let me know and we can discuss it further.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
