What is Embezzlement?

Embezzlement is a white-collar crime involving the misappropriation of funds or assets entrusted to an individual's care, often within an employment context. Embezzlement charges can range from minor incidents involving small sums of money to complex cases involving substantial financial assets. Regardless of the scope of the allegations against you, it is crucial to take these charges seriously and seek legal counsel promptly.

Why You Need an Embezzlement Lawyer

Facing embezzlement charges can be overwhelming, as these allegations can lead to severe penalties, including imprisonment, fines, restitution, and damage to your reputation. Our embezzlement lawyers understand the intricacies of embezzlement cases and can provide you with a comprehensive defense strategy tailored to your specific circumstances.

Potential Penalties for Embezzlement

The penalties for embezzlement vary depending on the value of the misappropriated funds or assets and other factors such as prior criminal history. Common penalties for embezzlement convictions include:

  • Imprisonment: Convictions can result in jail or prison sentences, which can range from a few months to several years or more, depending on the severity of the offense.

  • Fines: Fines may be imposed, which can be substantial and financially crippling.

  • Restitution: Courts may order the defendant to repay the victim for the misappropriated funds or assets.

  • Probation: In some cases, individuals may be placed on probation, with conditions such as regular check-ins with a probation officer and restrictions on their activities.

  • Criminal Record: A conviction for embezzlement can have long-lasting consequences, including a permanent criminal record that can affect your employment prospects and reputation.
