    Fraud not exceeding $5000
    I use to work at a local grocery store. In about mid Nov, one of my coworkers came through my cash(I was a cashier), and attempted to walk out of the store with merchandise she did not pay for, with out my knowledge. She was apprehended by in store security ,and we were both taken to the managers office, where we were held for approx 3 hours before the cops came and placed us under arrest. We were both then escorted out of the store, with a warning not to come back onto this stores property.I was called back to the store a few days later, to talk to a union rep, and such, At this time the "officially" fired me, and prohibited that I come onto any properties owned by the company. Fast forward a few months, to Jan 26. I received a paper in the mail that stated...

    "The said region did by deceit, falsehood, or other fraudulent means, defraud merchandise of a value not exceeding $5000, contrary to section 380, subsection (1), clause (b) of the criminal code of Canada"

    Now, I have no clue as to how I should proceed, (other then to appear at the appointed date), and what kind of sentencing (if it gets to that stage) that I would receive. This I the only time something like this has happened to me, and I have a clean record.

    Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated, as I am very concerned about this, and confused as to how I should proceed.
