What Actions May Be Embezzlement?
Embezzlement can take several forms and may include accusations that you:
- “Skimmed” from a cash register
- Underreported your company’s income
- Took a lot of money or property entrusted to you in a professional context
The true facts of your case, find out how police observed your rights during your arrest and bring findings that can support your side of the story during criminal defense litigation, if a trial is necessary.
You have one chance — only one — to hire the right attorney to defend you. Too much is at stake in your case for you to take that chance lightly. You may face jail time, substantial fines and a criminal record if you are convicted of embezzlement. Do what you can to avoid those harsh punishments by speaking with us about your case.
Embezzlement Charges Can Be Fought
Whereas fraud implies intent to commit theft or a crime of deceit, embezzlement involves larceny committed by a person in a position of trust. Embezzlement charges are very serious and are often prosecuted in federal courts.
Today’s employers are largely content to attempt to resolve embezzlement cases without the added time, emotional stress and expense of a trial. If you contact our skilled lawyers at the outset, we may be able to resolve the matter early in the legal process, offering restitution and other remedies in an effort to avoid criminal charges being filed.
