Nobody Talks, Everybody Walks. Ohio criminal defense lawyer with nearly 40 years experience

“When I was arrested by the Feds on Drug Conspiracy charges, they told me I was facing mandatory life in federal prison without the possibility of parole. I knew that I was innocent, but I was scared . . . so I knew that I would have to find a lawyer who was not afraid of the Feds and would take my case to trial. I chose Greg Robey because he is a fighter. After over 2 weeks in a federal jury trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. My family and I am forever grateful to Mr. Robey.” -L.B., Mansfield, Ohio

Why You Need an Embezzlement Defense Attorney

The crime of embezzlement occurs when you steal something of value that you were entrusted to manage or safeguard. In many cases, embezzlement is a slow leak — money dribbles out of a cash register or bank account in small amounts so as to not raise suspicion.

If you are arrested for embezzlement, you need a skilled defense lawyer. If convicted, you face the following penalties:

  • Less than $1,000 — If you are convicted of embezzling money or property worth less than $1,000, you face a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
  • $1,000 to $7,499— Six months to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine
  • $7,500 to $149,999— Six to 18 months and a $5,000 fine
  • $150,000 to $749,999 — Nine to 36 months and a $10,000 fine
  • $750,000 to $1.49 million — Two to eight years and a $15,000 fine
  • $1.5 million or more — Three to 11 years and a $20,000 fine

With an embezzlement conviction on your record, you are unlikely to ever find work in the retail or financial industries. An experienced lawyer can build an effective embezzlement defense.
