A charge of embezzlement may come from an allegation that an employee obtained or misappropriated funds from his or her employer. The best time to address and potentially avoid embezzlement charge with when the case is under investigation by the local law enforcement authorities, and criminal charges have not yet been filed. If you have been terminated from employment or if you are made aware that you are the subject of an investigation by the police, contact a Schuylkill County criminal defense attorney at Williamson, Friedberg & Jones, LLC.
