I recently got let go over accounts that there's been shortages in my department at JCpenney.. I was currently working in the salon, and I have taken a little sum of money out of the draw, and have taken home hair products that i was going to pay for. Unfortunatly I had to confess to them that i have stolen money and merchandise to the loss and prevention people, as well as the local authorities.. They also said that my case was under investigation.. I got escorted by the Police and was told I would be getting a summons to court in the mail. What I was to know is what's going to happen? I understand it is that it's probably going to be in my record, and i may go to court, but I don't want to go to jail for this because it a small case. Help
Perhaps you should have thought of that before you stole from your employer. I mean, really ~ what were you thinking? There are tons of people out of work and you're lucky enough to have a steady job with a financially secure company ~ so you decide to steal?
Kind of an idiotic thing to do, wasn't it?
If it's a small amount and you have made restitution, you might wind up with probation and community service. If you're lucky. If not, get used to wearing orange.
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
