How much jail time will I get if I’m convicted of stealing money from work?

I got charged with stealing money from the drawer at work. It was me and another guy. We were both arrested and released on bail but somebody told us we'd probably have to do some jail time if we get convicted. It was several thousand dollars over the part year and a half. Can I really be facing jail time?

    Maybe but the best way to avoid this is to pay up the amount stolen right away.

    Yes you can. I strongly suggest that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for a face-to-face consultation and give him/her all of the facts surrounding your situation. He/she would then be in a better position to analyze your case and advise you of your options.

    In Maryland the maximum penalty depends on how much was stolen or attempted to be stolen. Ultimately sentencing depends on whether you have been found guilty, your prior record, how serious these are in the judges eyes, mitigation, and allocution.
