Common types of embezzlement

Embezzlement is a type of white-collar crime that covers a wide range of illegal activities. The Legal Information Institute defines embezzlement as the fraudulent taking of personal property by someone to whom it was entrusted. In the case of employee embezzlement, all that must be proven in Minnesota and all other states is one of two things: the employee either had possession of the goods or funds or had substantial control over them by virtue of his or her title or job description or by the practices within the company.

Two felony charges levied for alleged counterfeiting

People in Minnesota may sometimes hear reports of crimes that are investigated by federal authorities. These types of cases can include allegations of things like embezzlement, mail fraud, wire fraud and tax evasion just for starters. Another type of offense that may be considered a federal crime involves the production or the use of counterfeit United States currency.

What acts are considered environmental crimes?

In Minnesota and across the nation, crimes against the environment are becoming a huge hot button issue. The penalty for those convicted of environmental crimes can also be quite steep. This is why having Joseph S. Friedberg on your team can be a huge asset if you're facing charges related to these crimes.

Understanding health care fraud allegations

When a resident in Minnesota is accused of a serious crime like fraud, it is important to understand what may have led to such an allegation. In many situations, the line between normal business practices and potentially fraudulent activity can be very blurry and very thin. This may make it all too easy for someone to be accused of impropriety because things may look illegal but in reality no wrongdoing occurred. When it comes to health care fraud, there are specific things that are looked for to identify potential illegal actions.

Allegations of homeowner's association fraud being reviewed

Embezzlement charges in Minnesota can take many forms and may cross multiple types of industries and lines of work. People who hold jobs with fiduciary responsibilities may be at risk for being accused of theft or embezzlement in part because of their seemingly easy access to funds. That, however, does not actually mean that they are guilty of impropriety. As with any criminal case, it is always important that the full facts of a matter are reviewed carefully.
