The fact that you have no priors is good, but the amount you took is not. This is a 1st degree felony, punishable up to 30 years in prison. Since it is your first offense, the State would probably entertain a plea negotiation for less than the maximum amount but I'm sure a major factor in the plea will be a restitution requirement that will require you to pay the money back to the employer.

You are chargeable with a serious felony. Having no priors is a good thing, but your employer will have a strong say in your punishment. In Miami, you are likely to get a lengthy probationary sentence and a withholding of adjudication (no conviction). In other Counties you may do some jail. In any case, you will be ordered to pay restitution to make your employer whole.
