Yes embezzlement is an offense for which may include jail.
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS CREATED OR EXISTS. Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online. This is a general legal question and answer site and guidance here is for general interest---a push in the right direction.
I changed the practice area to criminal defense. It is certainly possible to go to jail for some period of time, even if only a few days, upon conviction of felony embezzlement. Embezzlement implies a breach of trust, and that is taken very seriously. The fact this is a first offense may not matter much. Did you pay the money back? You should consult with, and hire, a local criminal attorney to get the best result.
