That can be very tricky to answer, because you don't state the amount. Last year most of the cases prosecuted in the BMC were under $18k, and over that many were indicted by a grand jury for amounts ranging $22k to $45 k. If you over collected and the sum is less than $10k AND you are paying it back they may not charge you criminally. Larceny has a 'permanent intent to deprive the owner' element to it, and if you are paying it back then they cant prove intent to deprive. If you are getting it all paid back then you are less likley to be criminally charged. However, if you are contacted by any investigators from DUA or teh AG's office it would be the smart move to get a lawyer involved and Not speak to anyone without a lawyer.

You should have a written repayment agreement to protect you from charges such as these. You may wish to retain counsel now.

You are jumping all over the place so it is hard to understand you. Your best bet is to retain and consult with the criminal defense attorney. For all the issues can be raised and discussed. Good luck
