My question involves criminal law for the state of: AK
I was hired about eight months ago as the financial director of a small organization. Shortly after being hired I came home to an empty house as my partner had moved out while I was working. Having nothing I tried to put everything back together but couldn't afford it, so i began taking money from work. I never hid what i was doing and kept meticulous records as I planned to pay it all back.
However, on several different occasions I was stolen from, ironic I know, my vehicle was tampered with, and a friend died. I decided i would just continue on with stealing and would just kill myself when it was all said and done. I even went as far as flying out of state twice to find a particular drug which causes a quick and painless death., and I kept it handy at all times.
I now know from researching online that I was experiencing depression and may still be for all I know. My employer has now discovered the shortage and I'm assuming is in the process of pressing charges, I understand the severity of my actions and accept I will have to pay the consequences. I know from my own record keeping that what I took was close to 70k although I heard they're accusing me of well over 100k. What should I expect and how should I move forward from here?
