When you are facing sentencing by a judge for an embezzlement conviction, it is critical you have an experienced criminal defense law firm fighting for you.
The judge has many options available to him when he sentences you for an embezzlement conviction. The judge can:
l. Sentence you to up to 3 years in jail if you were convicted of felony embezzlement.
2. Sentence you to up to one year in jail if you were convicted of misdemeanor embezzlement.
3. Place you on probation and sentence you to some jail time as a condition of probation
4. Place you on probation without serving jail time but imposing “alternative sentencing”.
5. Order you to make restitution to the victim during the period of probation
Wallin and Klarich has represented hundreds of persons who had embezzled funds. We have learned how to resolve these cases to maximize the chance that our clients do not go to jail. For example, when you retain our firm, we will work with you and your family to make restitution early on in the case. Often when this happens, the “victim” no longer demands jail time, and “justice” can often be served by a probationary sentence without jail time.
Also, we have learned it is essential to inform the court about any stressors affecting your life when the embezzlement occurred. Additionally, we will be ready with numerous character witnesses who we will have speak at the sentencing hearing or provide us with powerful character letters on your behalf.
There is no substitution for experience when your freedom is on the line. If you are facing sentencing on an embezzlement charge you should place your trust in Wallin and Klarich. We know what you and your family are going through, and we will fight for you to achieve the best result possible at your sentencing hearing. People make mistakes. However, when clients hire Wallin and Klarich those mistakes often do not end with a jail sentence.
