What is Embezzlement?
Embezzlement is a type of fraud that involves the theft or abuse of funds that are placed in a person's trust, or funds that belong to your employer. A client has to trust that the person he is paying money to will use the money in the agreed-upon way. Similarly, a business has to trust that employees who handle the company's finances are directing the money correctly.
A classic example of embezzlement is a high-ranking executive of a company directing company funds into his own personal bank account. However, these cases are often more complex than that example. If you are accused of embezzlement, having an experienced criminal defense lawyer representing you will be crucial to you in order to prove your innocence.
Embezzlement is a crime that prosecutors tend take very seriously. The perception that an executive or any other employee betrayed the trust of a company in order to line his or her pockets tends to bring about an unforgiving jury. Whether you have been framed for something you didn’t do, or a smaller situation has gotten out of control, we can help you fight the charges.
