Embezzlement is a crime that involves the theft of money by a person who has been entrusted with its oversight or management. While many embezzlement crimes are prosecuted at the state level, there are many situations where the federal government has jurisdiction. If you have been accused of a federal embezzlement crime, don’t place your future in the hands of a defense lawyer who lacks federal experience. The federal process is completely different from the state level. Be sure your attorney is up to the task.

When Embezzlement Becomes A Federal Matter
