It’s like robbing a house and leaving a signed note behind.If anything here makes me wonder about the intern’s version of events, it’s this.I am not sure how to frame this when I speak to my boss.
When the jacket went missing, the intern went to security and the footage from the lobby and parking area showed the staff member taking the jacket to her car when most other people were in a meeting.
The intern got the police involved and told them her wallet with all of her ID and credit/debit cards were in her pocket.
But lots of people commit incredibly stupid crimes so that in itself isn’t evidence of anything …
and again, these are all questions for the police, the prosecutor, and your coworker’s lawyer to work out.
She says the intern placed the orders in her name once she realized the jacket was missing as a form of revenge.
The staff member is credible, she has no history of trouble working here, has no criminal record and is a good person who volunteers and is active with her church and her family.
That has the potential to create a really bad situation, so your boss should know.) All that said …
it would be awfully poor judgment to use your own name when ordering on someone else’s stolen credit card!
He husband has told me that her lawyer advised her to take plea to get less time in jail because a trial would not be good for her.
