Embezzlement Defense in El Dorado County
Aggressive Placerville Criminal Defense Attorney
Embezzlement is a white collar crime which involves the theft of financial assets from a business or employer. Although it is a non-violent crime, embezzlement is prosecuted and punished very severely, especially in the case of felony charges. If you are under investigation for embezzlement or you have been arrested, your first step should be to speak with an El Dorado County criminal defense attorney. As the leading lawyer at the Law Offices of Rachel D. Miller, I work hard to protect my clients' best interests and rights.
Understanding Embezzlement Charges
If a company believes that it has fallen victim to embezzlement, they may try to talk with you directly if you are a suspect. You may be called in and asked to sign a confession or admit to what they believe you have done. However, you are not obligated to do so and you have the right to retain the services of a skilled El Dorado County white collar crimes lawyer. My goal is to investigate the details of your case and gather sufficient evidence to show that the company does not have weight against you.
A few examples of embezzlement charges I defend include:
- A non-profit organization's treasurer is stealing money from the accounts to pay their own bills.
- A healthcare worker steals money from their patients and puts it into their own bank account.
- An employee steals a company car and uses it for personal reasons, before bringing it back.
