This charge would likely be a felony-level charge of Theft by Unauthorized Taking or Theft by Deception. A felony theft involves any amount greater than $500.00. This would be a class A felony as it is greater than $1,000.00. If the person has no prior criminal record, there is a strong chance that the result of the case would not end up in jail time. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to discuss this further,
