Being in charge of an organization's finances is a large responsibility. Any mistakes that are made could not only impact the organization but could also leave a treasurer susceptible to criminal allegations. In fact, a woman who served as the secretary of a volunteer fire department in Missouri is now accused of embezzlement.
There are times when a person may act in a way, without fully realizing the implications of their actions, that could leave them in a precarious legal situation. For example, a person who takes debris from a construction site may not fully realize he or she could be charged with a crime. Despite this, a Missouri man has recently pleaded guilty after being accused of embezzlement.
Those who have positions of power in a company have multiple important decisions to make that could ultimately impact a company's success and the jobs of several people. Unfortunately, those in such positions also face additional scrutiny should something go wrong -- such as if money goes missing. Unfortunately, a chief financial officer in Missouri now faces accusations of fraud.
Most people in Missouri work hard at their jobs. Many dedicate large portions of their lives to one employer. Unfortunately, one man who has worked at a community college since 1992 is now being accused of embezzlement.
Most people would admit that a job that requires a direct sale to clients has its challenges. However, many people who work in such a position excel at what they do and are able to succeed in their chosen profession. Unfortunately, police in Missouri claim that a man who sold dental insurance policies was actually involved in a fraud scheme.
There are many workers in Missouri who are dedicated to performing their job tasks as expected. However, even the most dedicated employees are capable of making mistakes. Unfortunately, if those mistakes ultimately lead to the loss of money, employees could find themselves facing accusations of fraud. In fact, a former employee of an excavating company has recently been charged.
While there is a risk of being involved in a car accident at any time of day or night, the lack of visibility experienced at night can be especially difficult for some drivers. Unfortunately, police may be quick to make assumptions about the cause of an accident that occurs during the early morning hours, concluding that alcohol or drugs were involved rather than a simple driver error. In fact, a man in Missouri was arrested for DWI following a recent crash.
When a person is accused of a crime, he or she is often left to make several confusing decisions that will likely have a significant impact on the rest of his or her life. Often, with the guidance of an experienced attorney, the decision to plead guilty is made. In fact, a Missouri woman accused of embezzlement for her former employer has recently done so.
When faced with criminal charges, many people may not know what to do. Some people, upon recognition that there may be enough evidence to convict them, may choose to plead guilty, even if they did not commit the crime. In fact, a woman in Michigan recently pleaded guilty to fraud charges.
The internet has revolutionized the way people conduct business and maintain relationships. Often, it allows people who are hundreds of miles apart an opportunity to connect with others in a way that they would never be able to without the internet and social media. However, it also leaves people vulnerable to certain allegations. In fact, a man has recently been indicted on federal fraud charges in Missouri.
