Hi atty! I hope you could answer my concern. I misappropriated company funds which led to my termination but i was able to pay my previous employer at least 350T and my obligation should now be around 200T. After several months, i received a letter from their legal department. I replied to this letter asking for more time but i did not get any feedback. pinabayaan ko na lang muna kasi wala din po akong trabaho and naghahanap pa. last January, nakakuha po ako ng NBI clearance and i thought baka d na nag-file ng case. kaso lang kahapon my mother received a letter addressed to me from the office of the city prosecutor na nag-file na ng complaint ang former employer ko po. tumawag ako agad sa HR ng former employer ko and asked if i could still have a compromise agreement. sabi sa akin, i could send a formal letter and state my terms of payment.
question lang po, if sa company ko po ako mkkipag-usap, what will be my reply to the city prosecutor?
malaki pa po yung balance ko and i cannot repay them in 10 days time.
another question po, if the case pursues and i file a bail, can i file a probation while still on bail?
will the probation, in any way, allow me not to serve jail time?
thank you po. wala pa po akong pera to consult a lawyer regarding this.
