restitution has been paid and my father ok me taking the money out his account. its my grandmother who filed fraud affidavit. and the bankpaid her back so they filed charges. i also had account with bank and the debited the amount from my account.
the total was 465 dollars not 9 hundred something like one of the repondents said.
