$19,000 Employee Theft Charges Dismissed
Not long ago, a female employee with a cash management company was caught in a very serious situation when she was accused of stealing more than $19,000. What made matters even worse for our client was that before contacting an attorney, she wrote an admission statement to her employer. Now, after essentially admitting to embezzlement, the woman was facing an almost assured conviction.
A theft conviction like this would not only have resulted in a long prison sentence, it would also limit her ability to find a good job after her release. However, based on our good working relationships with local prosecutors, our attorneys were able to secure a result that allowed her to avoid time in custody, pay restitution, and complete probation and community service. Once these terms are completed, the charges will be dismissed and her record will not be negatively impacted.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
