Accused Of Embezzlement?

The penalties for embezzlement depend on the amount of money or value of property that was allegedly stolen. Even the lowest-level embezzlement charge, which involves stealing money or property valued at less than $500, can result in a $1,000 fine or up to a year in jail if you are convicted. The most serious charge can put you behind bars for a decade and lead to thousands of dollars in fines and restitution.

If you are convicted of embezzlement, you will also be left with a criminal record that may make you unemployable. In a competitive job market, people with theft crimes on their records are often the first to be rejected for an open position.

Embezzlement Charges And Employee Theft

Embezzlement often involves allegations of an employee stealing from an employer. The theft may be as simple as taking a piece of property out of the office or as complex as diverting funds from a company account into the employee's account. Our lawyers know how to analyze account statements and other data to determine what really happened.

Embezzlement can also involve anyone in a position of trust taking money from those who entrusted them.
