Fraud crimes such as embezzlement, business theft or other forms of fraud are defined in most cases as the theft of financial resources by a person who has the responsibility to take care of those assets. In the basic sense, this can include everything from financial managers who have access to the recording of major financial assets, to a grocery store clerk who under reports daily sales numbers.
Charges of embezzlement, business theft and other forms of fraud are taken very seriously and are aggressively prosecuted by the United States government. A conviction of these crimes carries with it the potential for lengthy prison sentences and high fines. And even just the hint of investigation or charge of one of these crimes can mean detrimental consequences to your business. Federal charges like these can leave a lasting negative mark on a person’s life and future potential.
Charges of embezzlement, employee theft and other forms of fraud are more often than not brought by the federal government. The federal government can be a formidable opponent in court because of its vast and virtually inexhaustible supply of resources for investigation and prosecution. Because of this, if you are under investigation by the federal government for embezzlement, employee theft or some other form of fraud or if you have been charged with one of these crimes, it is crucial to contact an experienced attorney to get the sort of representation that your case requires. Levin & Curlett will present your options, protect your rights, and investigate your case thoroughly before discussing settlement or going to trial.
