  • Time clock fraud California Colorado

    I have recently committed time clock fraud. I paid the company back in full restitution the very next day. I am going to court for this. It is my first real offense ever in my entire life I am 19 years of age. I live in colorado I was wondering what you people would think would be punishment for what I have done? The max is 1000$ or 1yr prison or both I am extremely scared I honestly didnt even know that this was a crime.
    Thank you
    Matt

          Pay the fine. Possibly a little bit of probation on a first offender status. Make sure the judge is fully aware that you sincerely regret stealing from your employer. Don't get all emotional but sincere remorse goes a long way in a court of law. Hopefully you have learned how very wrong this is and won't repeat this mistake ever. Right?

          Good luck to you.

            Kick Me may be correct; however, since this really doesn't fall under employment law I doubt anyone can give you more than a guess.
            The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

                Not a problem, kingpin. It's just that, at this point, the situation is now a matter of criminal law, not employment law. Also, the fact that you have already made restitution should bode well for you.

                Good luck and I'm glad you've learned one of the lessons of the working world.
