Colorado Springs Embezzlement Attorney
Solid Attorney For White Collar Crime Defense
Embezzlement is a white collar crime, which means that it is generally considered nonviolent in nature, and results in an illegally obtained financial gain for the alleged perpetrator. Embezzlement is a crime in which someone who has been entrusted with money (an accountant, attorney, employee, etc.) steals that money, betraying the trust that has been placed in him or her. Depending upon the circumstances, embezzlement may be tried as a
federal crime, which means that is will be harshly pursued by federal prosecutors, and under the federal sentencing guidelines, the penalties for conviction can be extremely severe. When facing these charges, it will be to your benefit to retain the services of an aggressive Colorado Springs white collar crimes attorney.

What Happens In an Embezzlement Case?
When facing embezzlement charges, there are many factors that are considered before sentencing is passed. If you are convicted, the judge will look carefully at the circumstances surrounding your case to determine what he or she believes to be a fair punishment. Factors such as the amount of money that was embezzled, the relationship between the alleged embezzler and victim, the method that was employed to commit the crime, and more, will be taken into consideration when sentencing is passed. Depending upon the circumstances, an embezzlement conviction may be punishable with the following:
- Community service
- Restitution to the victims
- Monetary fines
- Jail time
