I agree with my colleagues. Georgia law provides for several ranges of punishment depending upon the value of the property alleged to have been stolen. If the value is over $5,000 but less than $25,000, the crime is a felony and is punishable by 1 to 10 years. Your fiancé needs to quit talking to anyone other than an attorney.
For misdemeanors in GA, you are facing a maximum sentence of 12 months for each charge and a maximum of $1,000 fine.

There may be consequences that you need to be aware of.
First this question is most appropriate for your attorney. If you don't have one, you need to get one. With that said, the husband can agree to pay attorney's fees.
