Texas embezzlement suspect convicted of tax evasion

When allegations of committing a white collar crime arise, those who have been accused could experience both immediate and long-term consequences as a result. For example, they could be let go from their job, placed in prison or have problems with friends and family members, even if they did not commit the crime. In Dallas, Texas, people who have been accused of tax fraud, identity theft, embezzlement or any other type of white collar crime should make sure they are aware of their options.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, a man who was accused of embezzling over $250,000 from a country club in Irving was recently convicted of tax evasion. As a result of this conviction, he now faces up to five years behind bars.
In 2007, the man was charged for under-reporting his income after he failed to disclose money which he reportedly stole while he served as the director of accounting for the country club. The sentencing date has been set for October 17.
Heading to court can be tough, especially if someone doesn't have a great deal of experience with the legal system. Additionally, some people may worry that they will not be able to present their case properly and make sure their side of the story is heard in the courtroom. White collar crime convictions can make life considerably difficult, even after someone is released from prison, which is why talking to an attorney could be important. From struggling to continue working in a certain occupation to dealing with a negative stigma, these charges can follow people around throughout life.
