Have You Been Charged With Embezzlement?

Embezzlement cases are on the rise, perhaps driven by the rocky economy of recent years.

Embezzlement is classed as a crime of theft. While every case is different, the charge is that you took or possessed money or assets that belonged to someone else.

It happens most often on the job or in an organization the suspect belongs to or serves. It is sometimes referred to as a violation of one's fiduciary duties to the other party. They trusted you with the assets, and now you are charged with breaking that trust.

It is a serious charge, for which you need a strong defense. Casale & Bonner, P.C., is versed in the most effective defenses for embezzlement, and can help you by having charges dismissed entirely or reduced to a more acceptable charge.

The burden of proof in these cases is on the prosecutor to show that the defendant intended to permanently deprive the owner of the property.
