I took my employer gas cards to fuel up my car and spent no more than $1000
The maximum penalty for embezzling $1000 from your employer is:
- A fine of up to $25,000
- Incarceration of 2 to 5 years in jail
- Or both.
If your employer is a school, a place of worship, or a government entity, the penalties are higher.
