I was fired from my job 6 months ago for embezzlement. They had told me they wouldn't file charges if I continued to help them out while they found a replacement and pay restitution. I've been making monthly payments and more when I'm able to. For about 4 months I continued to work for them from home and they paid me through payroll. I just got a subpoena notice from my bank so I think they're pressing charges now but I've not received anything from the police. I've been very cooperative and never been in any trouble before.
It's not clear that any criminal charges are pending.

It's not possible for us to estimate your actual exposure on line. We can state the maximum sentences for embezzlement but that does not tell you much. You need to follow Mr. Finnecy's advice and consult a criminal lawyer.
Find the case number on the subpoena. It could be a from a civil case, not a criminal one.
