It happened not too long ago, I haven't even had a pre-trial or sentencing yet, but I embezzled money from a retailer I was working at. The L/P said roughly $2,100, but I'm not sure how accurate that is. I admitted to stealing money by taking return and gift card refunds. I was arrested and taken to jail, but was only booked and let go a few hours later. The deputy stated that I was being released on "Misdemeanor Charges for embezzlement". I don't know what to do, my hearing is a week away. I'm nervous of how much jail time they are going to put me through, and if "Not Guilty" is the way to go? My aunt was charged a felony embezzlement, and spent 9 days in jail for $3,500 that she took. Can someone help me?
