The crime of embezzlement involves the allegation that somebody with permission to have access to goods or funds steals them. Often, innocent people face the unjust accusation from employers, supervisors, co-workers, law enforcement personel or prosecutors that from a position of trust they embezzled money from a company. Embezzlement is a serious felony crime. It requires a skilled lawyer to mount an effective embezzlement defense.
