My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
My brother is going to court tomorrow because he stole checks from his job. for what he told is close to $90K (he didn't get it all since he would split it with his friend). He did not put his name on any of the checks but instead put the name of one of his friends. They got caught. He confess it was him the one providing the checks as well as putting the name on some of them. This was back in April or May. he didnt hear anything about it until today when the officer asked him to go to his office tomorrow at 730AM to go to court. He has never been arrested or even had a traffict violation. He has recently fixed his immigration status because he got marry, would this affect that? what can he expect? can he be free and just pay back the money or will he face time? Thank you!
