I want to know what to do or where to go from here. I have been caught of stealing money from my work place ( theft). The amount is about 18k from what I remember. I have been loading payments up and the directors approving them didn't know they were for me. :/ This isn't something I have ever done before and it was very stupid. I told the company I will pay the amount back but they're still going to the police, so I wont be able to pay them back if they go to the police til I have some sort of income again. What will happen to me under criminal law? Will I go to jail?
