What is embezzlement?

Some employees are entrusted to handle and manage the finances. In other cases, employees have limited encounters with money in the workplace. Whether an employee is tasked to handle the finances or not, much trust goes into an employee that interacts with the money coming in and out of a business. If a company winds up short, it is likely that these individuals will be looked at. However, in cases where a business is making millions or billions of dollars in revenue, it can be difficult to notice or even pinpoint where money is going once it is realized. Thus, employees could face allegations for embezzlement years down the line. Facing such criminal charges can be serious, as it can tarnish ones reputation, even harming his or her ability to maintain a career. Thus, it is vital that criminal defense strategies for these types of criminal allegation are understood.

Helping you timely address a DUI charge

Once we hit the age of 16, most individuals in Louisiana and elsewhere obtain a license to drive. And when we finally reach age 21, we seek to legally drink. While both of these activities are legal to do once the proper age is reached, doing both activities at the same time is not only considered dangerous but could also result in a driver facing criminal charges. Although a DUI is a traffic offense, it is one that could carry harsh penalties, especially if it is not a driver's first allegation. Thus, taking these matters seriously and exploring defense options is a vital step to take.
