Before an arrest on charges of theft in an embezzlement situation, there are usually indications that an investigation is coming. You may realize you need to talk to a white collar crime attorney if:
- You are aware of activity that might result in accusations of mishandling of funds you are responsible for, such as expense accounts for a school, company or nonprofit organization.
- Rumors have been circulating that an investigation is coming — and you realize you will likely be named as a suspect.
- Investigators have asked to review the books for accounts you are in charge of.
- You have been charged and arrested with a white collar crime.
Whether you were a bookkeeper with a gambling addition or a treasurer for an organization that has reported shortfalls in accounts you were managing, the worst thing to do is hope the problem will go away. Once accusations exist, an investigation will likely ensue. You may be a store clerk who was observed on videotape engaging in mishandling of cash in the cash register. You may have written checks to yourself out of a slush fund you had access to as treasurer of a school sports team. Whatever the circumstances, the only way to get past the mountain is to go over it. If you try to go around it or hide further, the problem is likely to get worse before it gets better.
