If your employer decides to report this to the police, you will most likely be charged with embezzlement. It may be time for you to start looking for an attorney.

$50,000.00... .that's a felony. Consequences can be very serious... prison. However, without more, I can't say. You should retain the services of an attorney.

    You have the right to remain silent. Only idiots talk to investigators/cops. Remember, no matter what you say it will be twisted around and used against you later.

    Even with no priors, given the amount of the theft, jail time is a distinct possibility. Contact an attorney to represent you.
