My friend had a job at New River state park and in one of the offices there was a safe and he stole 1000$ out of it. His employer said if he didn't pay it back he was pressing charges, if he can't pay it back will he go to jail or prison, if so how long?

If convicted, active jail time is determined based on several factors however possible active jail time is likely the least of your friend's concerns, employee theft in North Carolina is a felony and a conviction will for a practical purposes - ruin what remains of your friends life.
