  • Blemished criminal record

Embezzlement and employee theft often involve an abuse of trust - the embezzled money was entrusted to the person, who misappropriated it for personal use - as well as fraud such as credit card fraud, check fraud, bank fraud, or accounting fraud. Penalties are usually proportional to the amount of money stolen, but embezzlement of any amount is serious: talk with a defense lawyer who will take an aggressive stance to protect your rights and reputation.
