Also referred to as “employee theft” or “employee fraud”, embezzlement occurs when an employee illegally transfers, uses or appropriates money or property for their personal use. An accountant, manager, CEO or any employee may be accused of this crime. Once an accusation is made, an audit will typically be conducted, and the employer may try to withhold the wages of the employee accused of embezzlement. If your employer has said that they suspect you of embezzlement it is essential that you consult a criminal defense attorney in order to explore your best options and defense immediately.

This all may be avoided when an experienced and aggressive criminal defense lawyer takes on the case, crafting the correct defense strategy to obtain the best possible results for their client.
