Jacksonville Federal and State Embezzlement Defense Lawyers
Embezzlement is the term used for theft, generally from a business by an employee, director, shareholder, or person who was entrusted with the care of assets or monies of a business or person. The most common example is a partner or shareholder in a business or corporation who steals money and takes steps to cover up the theft through fake receipts, invoices, vendors, or other types of schemes. In Jacksonville, the federal government generally regards these types of thefts as civil matters. However, when the federal government does decide to prosecute for embezzlement, complex litigation over the guilt of the defendant is sure to follow. For example, theft from the federal government or state government often is prosecuted in federal court in lieu of state charges.
However, accusations of embezzlement are often unfounded. At Arnold Law Firm, our attorneys have important and lengthy experience in embezzlement and other kinds of White Collar Crimes.
