Defend Against Embezzlement Charges
Embezzlement is a specific white-collar crime that occurs when someone who was entrusted with money instead takes the money for his or her own use. Employees are most commonly charged with embezzlement. If you are facing an embezzlement charge in New York, the Law Firm of Michael S. Berardino, formerly Mangialardi & Berardino will protect your rights.
As a former prosecutor, I understand the criminal system from both sides. I am able to fight against an embezzlement charge because I know how prosecutors evaluate their evidence and prepare their cases. Contact a White Plains, New York, embezzlement attorney today to discuss your case.
Under Investigation? Contact Us Before It’s Too Late
While employees are the most common embezzlement, larceny or misconduct suspects, anyone suspected of converting money belonging to someone else may be investigated, including fiduciary agents, trustees and accountants.
Even before you are officially charged with embezzlement, the police can investigate you. Police and other officials may interview you and question you on your role in an embezzlement scheme before you are charged. Your answers can be used against you during trial.
That is why I strongly urge you to contact my law firm as soon as you know that you are the subject of an embezzlement investigation. I will represent you throughout the embezzlement investigation. I will guide you through the process and make it clear to investigating officials that you have an attorney on your side who is willing to fight for your rights.
Embezzlement, Accounting Embezzlement and Related Charges
Another form of embezzlement is accounting embezzlement. This form of fraud occurs when records are altered to hide the embezzlement of funds. If you face any type of theft or embezzlement charges, prosecutors may also investigate you for evidence of money laundering or internet crimes related to the embezzling of funds.
When an allegation of embezzlement is combined with other charges, you could be facing even more serious punishment, including jail time, fines and probation.
