    Default Can You Be Prosecuted For Embezzlement If You Return The Money

    Someone made a huge mistake by taking customers down payments at a health club and not logging them. Someone is almost done paying back the money by logging the down payments 4 months down the road and depositing the cash into the owners business acct.

    Someone is an idiot and they deserve some consequence, however someone obviously does not want to go to jail, and never be hired by anyone agian.

    Someone is under the assumption the owner knows something is up.

    Questions

    1) If this person pays back all the money 4 months down the road, and the owner catches wind of the situation, can he still have this person prosecuted and would the case hold up?

    2) If this person does own up to the owner after he/she paids the money back, can he still prosecute this person? (He is pretty hard nosed)

    Any advice would help, its a tough situation - Someone wants to own up but someone dosent want to go to the pen either.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes returning the monies does not change fact it was stolen and rightful owner had been denied it for sometime

    2) If this person does own up to the owner after he/she paids the money back, can he still prosecute this person? (He is pretty hard nosed)
    See first answer

    Would "someone" be you? Not wanting to go to jail shoud have been the before thought not after!
