Detroit & Michigan Embezzlement Defense Lawyer
If you have been arrested and charged with Embezzlement you need an experienced and aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney to protect your rights.

Embezzlement
Embezzlement refers to the theft of money or property by an individual who was entrusted to handle assets owned by another person or business organization. Because those who are charged with Embezzlement had access, or in many cases, are expected to handle the assets they are accused of embezzling, the crime is rarely clear-cut. In fact, simple bookkeeping errors, sloppy accounting, or oversights have the potential to lead to a wrongful Embezzlement charge.

Consequences of an Embezzlement Conviction:
Embezzlement charges can ruin reputations, cost jobs, and destroy families, even if the accused party is eventually found not guilty of the crime. If an individual is convicted of Embezzlement, he or she could face severe penalties including jail, stiff fines, restitution, probation, or even prison

In order to convict an individual of embezzlement, the prosecution must prove:

  • That the defendant occupied or acted in a fiduciary relation covered by the statute.
  • That by virtue of such relationship, the property or money claimed to have been embezzled came into his possession or was under his control.
  • That he wrongfully converted or appropriated the same for his or her own use, with intent to defraud, without the consent of his principal.
