Representation for Your Embezzlement Charges

An embezzlement crime is committed when a person entrusted by another to handle money or property fraudulently takes the money or property. It is considered a theft crime and even though it is a non- violent crime, it can carry harsh and severe penalties for those who are convicted. Some of the consequences one could face for embezzlement are:

  • Jail time
  • Probation
  • Fines
  • Community service
  • A negative impact on your legal record, which may not be eligible for expungement in the future. This can severely hinder your ability to secure and maintain employment as well as limit your housing options. Any background check will show arrests, charges and convictions from your past.

If you or someone you know has recently been arrested or is currently under investigation for embezzlement, you should immediately speak with a highly qualified Orange County criminal defense lawyer about the details of your situation. You will need to know what legal rights you have and how to effectively exercise them to keep them protected.

After an arrest, you have two rights: the right to remain silent and the right to a lawyer. If police, investigators or even prosecuting attorneys are pressuring you for answers to questions or a statement about your version of the facts, do not answer without your lawyer being present. Even a declaration that you believe will prove your innocence could be potentially damaging to your case if spoken out of turn or taken in the wrong context. It is your legal and constitutional right to wait for your legal representative's guidance and you should absolutely exercise that right.
