Embezzlement and other forms of white-collar crime can carry harsh penalties with lasting effects. Unfortunately, since embezzlement involves the manipulation of funds or assets, whether an accused individual had legal access to the alleged crime is seldom clear-cut, leaving room for unfounded accusations arising out of miscommunications or mistakes. But by that same token, an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can create reasonable doubt in an embezzlement case, helping to minimize or dismiss all charges.

Embezzlement Conviction Consequences
Embezzlement convictions, and even charges, can have a devastating impact on the lives of those accused–personally, professionally, and financially. A conviction of embezzlement can result in penalties such as:
- Large fines
- Time in prison
- Forced payment of restitution
- Strained family relationships
- Lost job
- Greatly reduced earning potential
There are many defenses an effective criminal law attorney can adopt to help secure the freedom of his or her clients. For a defendant to be convicted of embezzlement, the prosecution will have to prove that the allegedly stolen or misappropriated assets were manipulated illegally by the defendant, and that the defendant manipulated the assets in an attempt to deprive the lawful owner of them. The attorneys and staff at Jacoby & Meyers have extensive experience raising doubt that these conditions were met, thus reducing the penalties our clients face.
