Terminated from work at a bar/restaurant as the manager for "stealing" from the atm machine deposits. If first offense and found guilty, what kind of jail time/punishment is he facing?

It is not possible to give you a specific answer to this question, because there are too many variables. I can tell you that you should absolutely retain the services of a lawyer at once, and make no statements to the police, your employer, or anyone else (including on-line services) until you have that lawyer's advice.
Depending on how much money was taken and the attendant circumstances, your charge could range from misdemeanor to felony and result in a little bit of probation and repayment of the fine, to prison time.
