Orange County Embezzlement Attorneys

White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers

If you have been accused of or are under investigation for embezzlement in California, it is vital to contact a white collar defense attorney who can actively protect your rights and help to ensure you do not serve time or pay for a crime that you did not commit or that the prosecution cannot actually prove. A competent attorney will be able to give you a consultation and advise you as to the best course of action from this point onward.

Embezzlement occurs when a person who is responsible for some aspect of the goods or money of an organization or company takes money or property from the company. This is different from theft in that the person is actually responsible for those goods or property which they take. Embezzlement is classified as a white collar crime because it generally relates to employment or business settings.

Penalties for Embezzlement in California

Embezzlement in California typically carries heavy punishment, including the repayment of money or goods stolen from the company, jail time and more. If the money taken was the property of the United States, the charge will automatically escalate to a felony offense and will include a mandatory state prison sentence as well as other penalties.

Some successful defenses for an embezzlement charge may include your defense lawyer proving that the prosecution does not have enough evidence to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you are guilty of the charges brought against you. Many embezzlement crimes are hard to detect and to prove because all of the paperwork will be in order, hiding the embezzlement altogether. In addition, complicated paper trails may confuse the actual source of the embezzlement. If you have been accused of such a crime, contact our Orange County defense attorneys today!

With representation from a member of our team, your charges could be reduced or dismissed altogether. Call now at (866) 902-6880 to learn more.
