Have You Been Charged With Embezzlement In Connecticut?
Like other larceny charges, embezzlement involves illegally depriving another person or business of money or valuable property. Embezzlement typically involves theft by someone with access to funds such as an employee, executive or a fiduciary.
Embezzlement can occur under a number of circumstances, from employees stealing money from cash registers to executive diverting company funds into personal accounts.
Embezzlement charges can range from a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by not more than three months in jail, to a Class B felony, punishable by up to 20 years in jail. The degree of the charges depends largely, but not exclusively, on the amount of money alleged to have been stolen.
Whatever embezzlement charge you face, it is important to mount an effective defense. In some cases, with skillful early legal intervention, criminal charges can be avoided entirely by negotiating a private restitution settlement. Jerome Paun is prepared to help you avoid the consequences of an embezzlement conviction, which may include steep fines, restitution and a lengthy prison sentence.
