Tennessee woman faces white collar crime charges

Many Tennesseans are entrusted with the money of others as part of their job. Servers handle cash used to pay a restaurant for food, bank tellers handle clients' money for deposit and company accountants may handle transactions and recordkeeping for large businesses. These individuals are entrusted with a significant responsibility, which means when anything goes wrong financially, these individuals may be the first subjected to accusations of criminal wrongdoing.

One Tennessee woman is in that position now after being charged with embezzling more than $800,000 from the bank at which she worked. According to reports, the woman, who served as the bank's assistant vice president, was recently arrested and charged with two counts related to theft in excess of $250,000. Authorities claim that the woman used her position at the bank to steal customer's money, then falsified records in an attempt to conceal her activities.

If convicted on these charges, this accused individual could be slapped with serious penalties. She may wind up facing a long prison term, financially devastating fines, and damage to her reputation that may be impossible to remedy. With so much on the line, she, and others who are similarly positioned, need to ensure that they put forth the strongest criminal defense they can under the circumstances.

Confronting white collar crime allegations is tough, though, especially when physical evidence leaves a defendant looking guilty. However, even in these situations, there may be defense options available, whether that be negotiating a plea, attempting to suppress damaging evidence or trying to destroy the credibility of the state's witnesses. Those who want to learn more about how to fight back against these charges should consider speaking with a competent criminal defense attorney.
