4 occasions
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

Ok. Have they already called the police?

she has
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

Ok.

There is an outside chance of a caution. It isnt particularly likely because this is theft from employer and that is aggravated because of the breach of trust. Also, this is a relatively large sum of money and this is fairly sophisticated offending with a high level of planning.

If the police are unwilling to caution then it would only lead to a low level communty order at court. It would not attract custody on a first incident.

Can I clarify anything for you?

am I not going too go to jail? And what's Cauction
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

Not if it is just £500.

A caution is a police disposal. It does still sit on your PNC but it is better than a conviction.
