Can you explain your situation a little more?
How much is it ?
What was the position of trust?
Is this the one only time that you've done it? Was it one instance or an ongoing course of conduct?
Is this from an employer?
I am sorry but this is going to fall into a category two culpability A bracket.
That will mean the starting point is two years custody and the range is one to three and a half.
This is a breach of a very high amount of trust. On the upside though it is money at the lower end of the sentencing scale.
if the end sentence remains under 18 months then you might be able to get a suspended sentence.
I am sorry but that is a reality.
Can I clarify anything for you?
You can do that but it doesn't mean they would engage obviously.
but you could try.
Whether it goes to court really turns upon your employer's attitude.
I a criminal lawyer so cant comment really on your employment situation.
if you post another question in employment then somebody could help though.
