What is Embezzlement?
Embezzlement involves theft where the defendant utilizes a position of trust to deceive another individual or entity of such property. Corporate officers and other company executives often face embezzlement allegations and other fraud charges when the company is investigated for illegal activity. However, any employee, agent or other individual in the position of trust can also face embezzlement charges.
Aggressive, Proactive, Thorough Embezzlement Defense
Investigations into fraud, embezzlement and other white collar crimes are conducted by the FBI over the course of months and even years. The extensive resources and investigative tools at their disposal can enable the government to accumulate massive amounts of damaging evidence from wire taps, paper trails, financial records, testimony from co-conspirators willing to make a deal, and much more.
While many defendants do not become aware that they are the target of an investigation for serious white collar crimes until the charges are formally filed, other defendants learn or become suspicious when they are questioned in connection to an ongoing investigation, or when they are subpoenaed by the Grand Jury. Early intervention is critical both in civil and criminal embezzlement cases. It can mean the difference between paying restitution and avoiding criminal charges and a criminal conviction that destroys one’s reputation, career and future.
Trupiano Law conducts thorough interviews of clients and implements intensive investigations to identify legal and factual arguments to raise in a client’s defense. When the evidence is indisputable, Kim works closely with the prosecutor and the alleged victim to negotiate restitution or other alternative resolution that avoids the necessity to file charges — and, ultimately, avoids a conviction and lengthy sentence.
