Embezzlement charges are very serious and usually involve an employee in a trusted position, such as a bookkeeper or banker, who unlawfully takes money for his or her own personal use. If you are facing an embezzlement charge it is imperative to contact a qualified attorney immediately. Do not speak to anyone, including an employer or the police without having first consulted a criminal defense lawyer.
