Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
do you know for certain that the Police were contacted?
Ok. Whose debit card was it?
How did you come by it?
What were the circumstances?
Well, that does rack up the seriousness I'm afraid. If this is a theft in breach of trust and from a vulnerable person then that changes the outcomes rather a lot.
If this is only £50 then normally it would be suitable for a police caution.
However, this is a serious breach of substantial trust and it involved a fair bit of planning. I think probably they would be looking to charge and send it to court.
At court you would only get a fine or a community order but you are at risk I'm afraid.
Can I clarify anything for you?
There are no time limits but usually they act within a few months.
not sure what you mean?
I'm happy to continue with this but please rate my answer.
