In some cases in which South Carolina companies cannot account for funds that have been taken out of business accounts, an employee is targeted and accused of taking the money. Such a breach of trust is known as embezzlement, and allegations can adversely affect the professional future of an employee. When a worker is accused of such misconduct, he or she may be unsure of how to handle the situation.
Fortunately, the experienced attorneys at Christopher A. Wellborn, P.A., focus on protecting the rights of workers who are accused of white collar crimes. We will launch an investigation, and many times our zealous and careful research reveals accounting errors or inappropriate business practices committed by other parties. We endeavor to expose the actual truth and will not tolerate a business owner using an employee as a scapegoat.
When embezzlement allegations are made, the burden is on the plaintiff and the prosecution to prove that the accused employee had fraudulent intent. In many cases, we have been able to show that such accusations had no merit. Embezzlement allegations can be made against workers suspected of skimming, forgery or theft; however, white collar crimes cover many other allegations. Employees who are being investigated for such crimes will benefit from arranging a consultation with Christopher A. Wellborn, P.A.
Our legal team has the tenacity, experience and knowledge to protect the legal rights of an accused South Carolina worker. We will also endeavor to limit the effect of such allegations on the future and freedom of accused individuals. Our skills as experienced embezzlement defense attorneys will be utilized to thoroughly prepare for plea negotiations, but if it is in the best interest of the accused worker, we will be ready to go to trial.
