If you have been charged with felony based upon lumping the individual thefts together, you could be sentenced to 1-5 years. However, if you were a fiduciary (in a position of trust with the money), you could be sentenced up to 15 years in prison. How much time you will actually get depends on a great deal of information that you have not included. Much of it depends upon your prior criminal history and/or the circuit's policies on this type of crime. For instance, some jurisdictions are very tough on employee theft whereas others normally give probation absent a substantial criminal history. One thing is certain, you will need an attorney to help you with your case.
