No not yet he's told me he deiced on Monday.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Will I be arrested and if so could I go to prison and how long for.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

Yes, you could be arrested.

This is theft from employer so very serious for that reason.

However, it is a low amount in terms of value and so it might be that the police would just caution you

If they do charge then it will just lead to a fine or a very low level community order. Whatever the level of dishonesty, this is ultimately only £40.

Can I clarify anything for you?

The thing is iv always paid for them at the end of my shift or beginning of my next shift. He has asked me to go talk to him today. What should I say to him.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

It might not be accepted that you have always done that I'm afraid.

In terms of what to say, all you can really do is apologise.
