Fraud Embezzlement Defense

Overview of Fraud Embezzlement

The crime of fraud is commonly defined as the use of deceit to unlawfully gain possession of someone else’s property. Theft is the motivating element in almost all fraud cases, and money is the most frequently chosen object. Fraud embezzlement is a white-collar crime that occurs when an individual steals financial resources that the accused individual was responsible for managing. Fraud embezzlement typically involves an employee stealing from an employer. For example, it can be as simple as slightly underreporting the day’s income, up to misappropriating enormous sums from investment accounts.

The penalties for fraud embezzlement vary largely depending on the amount stolen, but in any case, the consequences can be severe, including fines, restitution, jail time, or even a prison sentence. A conviction for fraud embezzlement can leave you with a criminal record that limits future employment opportunities, credit applications, and even housing options. It is very important that you contact a skilled and experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorney right away to assist you in avoiding the harshest penalties.
