Houston Embezzlement Attorney

Embezzlement is the legal term for employee theft.  Say for instance an employee at a clothing store swipes a blouse or a pair of pants from the stockroom—this is a form of embezzlement.  If an employee uses a business credit card for personal expenses without permission, this is also a form of embezzlement.

No matter the details of your case, the Houston Criminal Lawyer is not afraid to take on your case and fight for the best outcome possible for you.

The consequences in an embezzlement case depend greatly on the details of the crime.  If you are charged with only a misdemeanor crime, you may have to face a period of probation, a fine, and perhaps restitution.  But if your crime is deemed worthy of a felony charge, you could find yourself in state or federal prison.

Some employers are willing to drop the severity of the charges in exchange for an admittance of guilt and restitution, which may involve returning the item and paying an additional fine.
