White Collar Crimes Typically Leave A Paper Trail
Embezzlement can be detected a number of ways, including through:
- Missing, late or suspicious financial documents
- Unexplained profit fluctuations at the company
- Changes in an employee’s personal spending behaviors
- Unexplained charges in accounting records
- Delayed or missing bank deposits
- Check amounts are being altered
- Petty cash is missing
- Customers complaining that they’re receiving bills for services they’ve already paid for
The criminal defense lawyers at Berman & Russo understand that if you have been accused of taking money from an employer, time is of the essence when trying to rectify the situation. It’s important that we start to discuss restitution with your former or current employer as soon as possible. It may be possible to avoid embezzlement or larceny charges altogether.
If you have been convicted of embezzlement charges, we can also work with prosecutors and the court for a reduction in your sentence. You may be able to avoid jail time if you are able to make restitution and pay back some or all of the money that you owe. We make sure that the court hears your side of the story.
An embezzlement charge doesn’t have to take away your financial and personal freedom. Contact the lawyers at Berman & Russo to discuss your embezzlement case.
