Interviewed, on camera, as witness to a $200K fraud I uncovered at work allegedly committed by my predecessor. We went through the details of the evidence that consisted of three years of financials and the related paper files. Then we discussed the state of the bookkeeping systems that were broken down when I signed on. Then she asked me to comment as to his efficacy at his job since he had stayed on for two months overlap. In that time he had been mainly absent and unhelpful (big surprise). Once I realized he would be of little use to me, I just ignored him and began fixing the bookkeeping and financials by having the keeper re-enter all transactions from jan 2011 to September 2012 into new software as I overlooked and studied the structure of the organization. I found myself hesitating to pass judgement on his abilities to the cop as I felt that was not really, IMO germane to whether or not he jacked the dough. She became abusive in that she said she found it suspicious that I would not be truthful. I told her that my opinion of his work ethic would not count for much because I was too busy doing my job to really even notice him. She said " this isn't going anywhere so we're done, you won't cooperate" and escorted me out of the building, all the way nattering how I wouldn't tell the truth and do the right thing blah blah blah. She said they wanted me to tell them he wasn't doing his duties at work. Cop gotta stop and think about which side I'm on here and that my pouring through records brought this to light. Should I have just said he was an ass? That not only was he a thief, he sucked at his job and plain just didn't do his job? That he gave me no assistance?
