If an individual has embezzeled funds from an employer (by forging checks as an example) and then proceeds to pay back these funds, does this in anyway mitigate the actions of the individual?



I am a law school graduate. What I offer is mere information, not to be construed as forming an attorney client relationship.

Nope, because the crime you speak of requires your intent or measures your intent from the time you do it. Not your intentions/actions after.

So, let's say you go to steal a bike and you just pick it up in the yard and carry it three feet (still in the yard), and then decide not to take it, you are still guilty of larceny.

Larceny -- trespassory taking and carrying away with the intent to deprive. You had the intent to deprive and you took and carried, even if for a short distance.
