When someone is entrusted with money that is not theirs (for example, money that belongs to a business), and they take the money for their own personal enrichment without permission, it is called embezzlement. Being charged with embezzlement is if someone has legal access to money, but not legal ownership of that money.
If one did have legal ownership of the money in question, or otherwise being wrongfully accused, an embezzlement attorney like Chad Bank, Esq., can help defend you against these baseless and unfounded charges. In a criminal case, the burden of proof lies on a prosecutor – in other words, a prosecutor must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime in question. Provide evidence to substantiate these claims – and an experienced embezzlement attorney like Chad Bank, Esq., can help establish reasonable doubt.
Another thing to consider is that, in Rhode Island, embezzlement doesn’t just entail taking money. Rather, you can also be arrested and tried if you divulge trade secrets, regardless of the perceived or actual value of the trade secrets in question.
