This is the first time anything like this has ever happened to me. I work at a restaurant and a person told me how much they were going to tip. It is oddly weird, but I was grateful. When he had left and the receipt was on the table it was 10 dollars less than he stated so I thought it was a true mistake and made it what they verbally told me. It was an honest misunderstanding. What do I do?
Get a lawyer. You have no permission to "correct" any transactions. What you did was fraud. Request or hire a lawyer to work this out for you. You may get lucky and get the charges dismissed, or you may have to go to trial and take your chances.
