When it comes to embezzlement cases under California Penal Code 503 PC, the alleged victim is usually a company, a business, specific boss who trusted an employee, and that employee broke that trust by embezzling money.
So, it shouldn’t be surprising to you that the prosecutors and judge are going to be looking to punish the defendant in these types of cases. So, you really have to get your strategy together.
Fight Case vs Plea Deal
The first thing you’ll have to decide with the help of your attorney is whether we’re going to fight the case or whether we’re going to negotiate the case and work out a plea deal.
If on the other hand, we’re going to negotiate the case, then most of the time we’re going to want to try to come up with the money that was allegedly embezzled away from the victim in the case – the company, the boss, whoever it is.
Making that victim whole, paying the money back, goes a long way with the prosecutors towards resolving the case.
They consider one of their primary jobs as someone who is trying to help an alleged victim, to get the money back for them.
So, if we can help them get the money back, then we put ourselves in a strong position to try to do a lot of things:
- (1) avoid jail time;
- (2) stay out of jail or prison;
- (3) attempt to get a misdemeanor on the case.
Whether we get a misdemeanor from the beginning or whether we’re going to earn a misdemeanor.

I know what it takes to get you the best result and what it takes to defend the case.
If we actually have a good case that is defensible, and that’s what we’re going to have to talk about from the beginning, once we make our final decision, as far as whether we’re going to fight it or try to resolve it.
If we do decide to try to resolve it, I’m going to put together a mitigation package for you to be presented to the prosecutors to try to convince them of whatever we’re trying to get to resolve the case — whether that involves a misdemeanor, whether that involves no jail time or prison time.
Factors that Determine Defense Strategy
Whatever we’re angling towards, we first have to decide whether or not it make sense:
- based on the circumstances of your case;
- based on your criminal record,
- based on the amount of loss there is,
- based on how, whatever it is you did, impacted the victim in the case.
There’s a whole host of factors that we have to consider and then we have to get a game plan together specifically designed for you, your circumstances, your life, your career and your future.
