Strong criminal defense key when facing federal crimes

Anyone convicted of fraud in Indiana is likely to face some serious penalties. Many businesses rely on trust in their employees, and when that trust is broken by the suspected misuse of one's position, the company may wish to make an example of that employee. That is why people who are accused of fraud and embezzlement often waste no time seeking an attorney to help prepare a strong criminal defense.

Recently, a woman was accused of stealing over $625,000 from her employer through fraud. As the company's bookkeeper, she allegedly cut over 170 checks to herself. When the balance ran low in the company's bank account, the woman is said to have created an email account under a fake name and posed as a company official who authorized transfers of money from a line of credit.

With the allegedly stolen money, the bookkeeper apparently purchased several new homes and cars, took vacations and bought jewelry. She also reportedly purchased musical instruments, numerous weapons and tickets to sporting events. She was sentenced to more than three years in federal prison and ordered to make full restitution to her former employer. Additionally, she will serve three years of mandatory parole after her release.

This Indiana woman was the subject of a federal prosecution. This is typical for many white collar crimes. Anyone who is accused of fraud or embezzlement will need an dedicated attorney whose criminal defense experience includes federal crimes. Contacting a lawyer before charges are files may help insure the best possible outcome.
