I used to work at Circuit City in Michigan until I was brought into an office one day with the loss prevention manager and talked to. I confessed to stealing under the pressure... The loss prevention manager and myself came up with "estimates" of the amounts of items that were believed to be taken and a total number over the amount $10000 was totalled. I signed a confession stating what was taken and how and also a restitution agreement to pay it back.
I was never shown any video footage proving the theft of merchandise. The only thing presented to me was my eBay account (after the confession), which they probably got when I signed into it at work (stupid I know).
Can the papers that I signed and my statement be used against me in court? I think they have a really weak case and just tried to get me to confess in which I did under the pressure...
I was getting unemployment until Circuit City fought it and now it's been cancelled due to the confession. Can I fight this also?
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
