Embezzlement Guidelines

New York Embezzlement Crimes & Sentencing Guidelines

There are few non-violent crimes that have the potential to be more serious than those related to Embezzlement in New York. Criminal lawyers in New York City and those throughout the region know how serious prosecutors and judges take Grand Larceny arrests and convictions. The following sentencing guideline for crimes of Grand Larceny and Embezzlement are set by statute. Whether your criminal defense attorney can successfully deviate from the charged offense (initial arrest or indictment) to a lesser crime or non-felony offense is case specific. While the New York criminal lawyers and former Manhattan prosecutors at Crotty Saland PC have had tremendous success representing clients facing Grand Larceny allegations, our past results are in no way a guarantee for future success. Exploring defense routes and viable claims is something that is critical if you are to be successful in either confronting the allegations or mitigating your conduct.

Can your attorney exonerate you? Is it possible to mitigate your conduct from a felony to a misdemeanor or even a non-criminal violation? Although prison might not be mandatory, how will you convince a prosecutor or judge not to seek or sentence you to a term of incarceration?
