The theft of money and/or property by an individual or group responsible for handling those assets is known as embezzlement. Typically done in a corporate environment, embezzlement can result in serious penalties if you do not have a knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side.
Penalties for Embezzlement Can Include:
- Large Fines
- Losing Your Job
Since it can take on multiple forms, differing between theft and appropriate asset use in an embezzlement case may be difficult. Because of this, you may have been falsely charged with embezzlement when you were not even thinking that what you were doing was illegal. Whether you did or did not have the intent of embezzling assets, a criminal defense lawyer will help you get through this and if there was no intent of embezzlement, all charges may possibly be dismissed.
In order to be convicted for embezzlement, it must be proven that the accused individual intended to steal the assets for personal gain and fraudulent activity was committed in order to obtain these assets. Keep in mind that in more serious cases, the defendant can face up to 20 years in prison, depending on the value of the assets that were stolen. Do not risk the chance of this happening.
