The state of New York takes financial crimes very seriously. If you are accused of financial fraud or embezzlement, you could be facing serious jail time and a permanent stain on your reputation.

At Lerner & Lerner, P.C., our skilled Carle Place criminal defense attorneys have handled countless cases and can provide you with the aggressive legal representation you need.

What Is Embezzlement?

Embezzlement is a type of financial fraud where an individual fraudulently obtains property or money that is in their care, custody, or control. Embezzlement charges can be brought against anyone who has authority over money or property, including employees, agents, or anyone else who has the ability to control funds or property owned by another person or entity. You do not have to be the owner of the property to be charged with embezzlement; you could be accused of stealing even if you are only an employee.

Embezzlement charges can be filed against you if you are accused of:

  • Stealing money or property from your employer
  • Stealing from a client
  • Stealing from a government agency
  • Stealing from a pension fund
  • Stealing from a family member

Embezzlement is a class C felony in New York, which means that you could face up to 15 years in prison for a conviction. In addition to prison time, you could be required to pay restitution to your victims, which can include making up the lost funds that you are charged with stealing and paying court fines and fees. If you are convicted, you could be barred from working in your chosen profession and may have a difficult time finding employment in the future. You may also find that your reputation has been permanently damaged, making it difficult to obtain housing, loans, or other services.
