With experience in both state and federal courts, we know how to evaluate your case and strategize for the best possible resolution. If you are facing embezzlement charges in Ohio, you should have an idea of what you are going up against and what we can do to help protect your rights.
The Elements Of An Embezzlement Case
To be convicted of embezzlement, the prosecution must prove the following elements:
- A fiduciary relationship existed between two parties
- You received the property through the relationship
- You took possession of the property or transferred it to another person
- The acts were intentional
We will fight to mitigate the prosecution’s evidence and provide evidence that supports our claims. When the prosecution fails to prove each individual element, we will fight for an acquittal of the embezzlement charge.

We can challenge the prosecution’s argument by employing defenses such as:

- There is not enough evidence to convict
