Kangs Solicitors has been representing a client, an accountant, charged with embezzling more than one hundred and thirty thousand pounds from her employer.
Cagin Husnu of Kangs Solicitors sets out the details.
The Circumstances | Kangs Financial Crime Defence Team
- Following an eighteen months investigation conducted by the Economic Crime Unit of the West Midlands Police, our client faced allegations of falsifying invoices resulting in her receiving payments that were properly due to her employer.
- Our client admitted her guilt and the Kangs trial preparation team was vigorously involved in the assembly of a large volume of material in support of the mitigation which was prepared and presented to the Court on her behalf.
The Favourable Outcome | Kangs Fraud Case Defence Solicitors
- Having considered in detail the substantial mitigation put forward to the court, the Judge accepted that there were exceptional circumstances affecting our client.
- Accordingly, the Judge decided that he could justify departing from the Sentencing Guidelines, which form an important part in a Judge’s consideration of the appropriate level of sentence to be passed and which, in this particular situation, suggested an immediate term of a number of years in prison, and, instead, impose a Suspended Sentence Order.
Our Client’s Comments | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors
