A loved one of mine has recently resigned from their job at a financial institution. It has come to light that they embezzled $40,000.00. Since then they called their investigation department and turned themself in and has even met with the FBI to tell their story, BUT, they didn't have an attorney nor were they read their Miranda rights. They were told that they would contact them in a couple months for a court date. What will happen to them, it's their first offense and it all began as a HUGE mistake....Will they have to pay it ALL back in restitution? Will there be jail time, probation? PLEASE HELP ME HELP THEM! THANKS!



Pay it back? Are you kidding? People steal $40,000 every day..no big deal!

My response:

I don't know when stealing $40,000.00 doesn't begin as a "HUGE mistake", do you? Unless, of course, your "loved one" is Bill Gates, or Donald Trump.

Get a defense attorney for your "loved one".
