The criminal offense of employee theft or embezzlement is treated harshly under Florida law. Like any theft offense, it is considered a crime of dishonesty. In many of these cases, the employee has worked for the company for years, has no criminal history, and has taken in excess of $10,000. Prison sentences are common for these types of offenses, even if the employee has no other criminal record. It is imperative that you hire an experienced Orlando embezzlement attorney if you have been accused of this crime.
If your employer suspects you of theft, talk with an experienced Orlando criminal defense attorney before making any statement to the employer, Loss prevention officer or any law enforcement officer/detective.
