    Can I file criminal charges since a business owner stole money from me?

      I am a Freight Agent and I am set up as a 1099 contractor under another freight agent.

       

      When I joined under him we had an agreement to split my profit 50/50.  I only did this because he helped get me into the business and trained me.  Fast forward and I learn that not only has he taken the 50% but has shorted me my part by almost $40k.

       

      He will not send me the report from the company we work for showing what my break down is weekly. I have asked several times in writing.  I went through and did a rough estimate based on my work and actual weekly deposits.

       

      He admitted to me over the phone when I confronted him about the huge discrepancy but stated he doesn't have money to pay me back.

       

      Can I file theft charges against him?
