When someone is charged with a white collar crime, they may face a number of hurdles. On top of losing their job and experiencing significant damage to their reputation, some people also spend time behind bars. To make matters worse, some people are falsely accused and pay for a crime they didn't commit. As a result, it is crucial for those accused of embezzling to approach their case properly in Minneapolis, and throughout the state of Minnesota.
Federal prosecutors claim a Minnesota woman embezzled more than $1 million between 2014 and 2015. The woman, who used to work as a bank manager, allegedly used a line of credit and stole from customers. She has been accused of stealing $640,000 from the account of a single customer.
The Eagan woman has also been charged with swindling in Dakota County District Court. However, sources expect those charges to be dropped due to the federal charge she is facing. The woman is scheduled to appear in court on March 15.
After accusations of embezzlement surface, those accused may have no idea of what to do next. Not only do many people in this position feel overwhelmed, but some are unsure of how to approach the legal system. However, it is absolutely essential for anyone who is going through this firsthand to identify the appropriate course of action. Sometimes, people who are facing accusations related to embezzlement or other white collar crimes benefit from talking to an attorney about their set of circumstances.
