Orlando, Florida Embezzlement Defense Attorney

Felony embezzlement charges are an extremely serious matter, and the damage to your life should not be underestimated. You are worried not only about the punishments (imprisonment, destruction of your business or professional reputation) but also about the long-term consequences for your family and your legacy.

Per Florida Statute 812.014, embezzling is defined as a particular type of theft, in which a person in a position of trust intentionally misappropriates another person or company’s money or property for their own personal gain. A form of financial fraud, embezzlement applies to theft cases, in which the accused had access to assets but did not own them. Florida Law punishes embezzling violations particularly severely, since the crime involves the violation of fiduciary responsibility.

Diverse Punishments for Orlando, Florida Embezzlement

Embezzling charges can be punished either as a felony or misdemeanor. The crime can further be classified as a first, second, or third degree felony or first or second degree misdemeanor, depending upon the value of the property or money allegedly involved, the type of business where the offense occurred, whether other crimes were committed with the money, and many other circumstances of the crime.

In the most extreme examples – in which a defendant steals an asset worth over $100,000 or more – prosecutors can ask for a 30 year jail sentence and an enormous fine (up to $10,000). On the other end of the spectrum, secondary misdemeanor embezzlement can lead, at most, to a sentence of 60 days jail time and a fine of $500.

Examples of Embezzlement:

  • A professional investor diverts client funds into hidden accounts
  • A company manager electronically manipulates business funds and deposits them into third-party accounts
  • A store clerk siphons (pockets) money from the register
  • A bookkeeper alters journal entries and expense reports
  • A fiduciary misappropriates funds from a client’s trust account
  • An hourly employee falsifies overtime records
  • A CEO underreports profits
  • A government authority or municipal volunteer takes government property or funds intended for victims of flood or hurricane damage.

Building A Strong Florida Embezzlement Defense

In any embezzlement case, you want to know that you have a strong defense lawyer to assist you. At the TK Law Firm, our talented and resourceful defense attorneys are prepared to fight on your behalf with the goal of having the charges significantly reduced, keep you out of jail, and in some cases have the charges dismissed entirely.

Prior to indictment, in order to avoid arrest and being held over for a bond hearing, our attorneys will work to negotiate a settlement. We may retain forensic accountants to investigate the prosecution’s evidence for any facts that can be discredited or used to establish our client’s innocence. We work to establish reasons why the court should impose a non-prison term. Our defense attorneys will work to negotiate the most favorable terms for restitution for our clients.
