Close look at evidence can help defense in embezzlement case

When a person in Louisiana is accused of committing a white collar crime, the individual's reputation and future are at stake. Fortunately, an individual accused of a crime such as embezzlement is always presumed innocent until and unless his or her guilt is proved in a court of law. This individual's criminal charge must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt before a conviction can happen.

Besides embezzlement, other white collar crimes that can lead to time behind bars include money laundering and various types of fraud, ranging from bank fraud to loan and insurance fraud. An attorney for a person facing a criminal charge for a white collar crime will explore all aspects of the evidence that prosecutors intend to present. This is because succeeding in a criminal case is possible only if defense counsel knows more than the prosecution does.
