Accused of Embezzlement?

Ventura County Embezzlement Attorney

Are you accused of embezzlement in Ventura County?

If your employer or other party believes you are guilty of stealing money from a company, business or other organization, you are in serious legal trouble. The penalties that could be imposed upon you include prison time, restitution and the complete destruction of your personal and professional reputation.

People can make bad decisions when under stress. You may have done something you regret, or planned to return the money, or you may not be guilty at all and are falsely accused. Whatever the facts are in your case, one thing is certain - you will need a tough defender fighting for you. At our firm, Wilfert Law, P.C., we are formidable advocates in court, and while negotiating with the prosecutor on a plea.

No matter what your circumstances are, we are ready to fight for you. Read about our experience in defending serious theft crimes. Our founder is a former police officer and Ventura County Deputy District Attorney. We know the law and we are aggressive in defending our clients.

Penalties for Embezzlement in California

The penalties for embezzlement can be extensive. The punishment in a conviction will be based upon the value of the money alleged to have been stolen. Charges could be filed as a misdemeanor or felony. If a misdemeanor, the penalties could include a fine up to $1,000 and up to 1 year in jail. If the value of the theft is higher, or your criminal record makes it possible to impose a heavier punishment, you could face up to 3 years in state prison and fines up to $10,000. Each case is different in circumstances, evidence and the value of the alleged theft.
