Is stealing from work considered a felony?
This is a very personal and hard thing for me to talk about but I just need answers. My mother was fired from her job on Friday because she was caught stealing. Basically, her boss gave her a check of $3000 to void but instead of doing that she deposited the check into her bank account. There could possibly be a chance that she has done this before. I am very scared for her and just wanted to know if that was considered a felony and what could be the effect of this? Thanks.

Over $200 is a felony, sometimes they can press a felony on less, depends on the circumstances maybe. Embezzelment's still theft. Punishment depends on her criminal record.
