Joel Bacher, Criminal Defense Lawyer for Embezzlement Charges
Embezzlement is a form of financial fraud. It occurs when an individual entrusted with sums of money, secretly diverts those monies from an account or fund in which he or she oversees, spending it for personal gain or pleasure. The accused may feel he or she is rightfully entitled to these sums in question. It is a plausible defense. Other times despite the concealment, there are trails that suggest premeditation and systematic criminal taking.
Instances include a lawyer taking from an entrusted account (see legal malpractice). Another might be a financial advisor diverting money slowly and methodically to avoid detection.
What to Do if You are Arrested for Embezzlement
Many times there are gray areas that can be considered in a review of charges. Sometimes misunderstandings lead to erroneous charges, or over-charges by law enforcement. Regardless of the “facts” upon arrest, if you are booked for embezzlement or any other white collar crimes, do not talk to the police about your version of the “facts.” Do not try to negotiate with the police, even though you might know them personally. Exercise your right to remain silent and get a criminal defense lawyer for white collar crime at your first opportunity. The police, when questioning you, are not your friends anymore. Although they appear as such, that is how they do their job to get information to hold against you if you do talk. They’re just doing their jobs. Oftentimes an embezzlement charge is bundled with other white collar crimes related to it, such as bribery or fraud, which can ramp up the punishment and lead to a long prison sentence. Be polite, yes, but be firm, and request a call to a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity and continue to remain silent in the meantime.
Joel Bacher: Criminal Defense Lawyer for Embezzlement and Other White Collar Crimes
If you or someone you know has been arrested for a white collar crime, I urge you to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for representation and counsel ASAP. The prosecutor’s office will always have the responsibility of proving you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Not only is this hard to satisfy, but if the presiding judge has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to the crime, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed. I, Joel Bacher, am here to defend your rights. I have, for forty years, successfully defended numerous charges that involved corruption, bribery and other white collar crimes. My Wayne law office has achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a wide range of cases that involve all forms of white collar crimes. We prepare thoroughly for every case in the event of trial. We believe the way to mitigate white collar charges is to negotiate and litigate from a position of strength.
