Embezzlement is a very serious offense in North Carolina. If convicted, you could face jail time, fines and the possibility of paying restitution (i.e. paying back all the money taken). Therefore, if you are under investigation for embezzlement or if you have already been arrested and charged, make sure you retain an attorney who understands complex financial crime cases.
I am Greenville embezzlement defense attorney Keith A. Williams, and I have worked in North Carolina's federal and state justice systems since 1992. I am a former prosecutor who handled a variety of white collar cases, including embezzlement prosecutions. In my career as a defense lawyer, I use my knowledge of the state's tactics to help protect my clients' freedom and reputations.

Defending Clients From Many Occupations and Backgrounds
Embezzlement accusations, like other white collar charges, are often leveled against employees, most frequently those employees who had access to company accounts as part of their work. Over the course of my career, I have defended clients in Greenville, Raleigh and throughout eastern North Carolina who came from varied backgrounds and occupations, including:
- Corporate directors and officers
- Any employee within a company who had the ability to write checks, use credit cards or make payments and withdrawals on a business account
What Activities Might Lead to an Embezzlement Prosecution?
Many people are charged with embezzlement/misappropriation of funds because they allegedly:
- Skimmed money from deposits
- Wrote checks to themselves or others out of company accounts
- Had the ability to transfer money from one account to another
- Made a charitable donation in their own name using company funds
