    Default Potential Embezzlement Charges

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: PA

    I worked for Company (A) in Illinois. They needed a company to run their laborers. I contacted a friend in PA and opend a division of Company (B) from PA in Illinois for this purpose.

    During the course of my employ, Co. (A) had financial issues. I was told by owner of Co. (A) to return funds paid to Co. (B) at different times with the understanding that it would be returned to Co. (B). Never was repaid. Basically the only thing ever paid to Company B was enough to cover net payroll and most union expenses.

    Company A & B severed relations when I left the employ of Co. (A). Company (A) still had major outstanding debt to Company (B).

    Now, because of money owed (including taxes) by Company (B) that was due from Company (A) and because I signed and/or cashed checks giving funds back to Company (A) I am being told that I am looking at embezzlement charges.

    I was under the impression that I was working for both. However, my pay was paid to and cut through Company (B). I was only doing what my employer (A) and his attorney/accountant told me to do. I had no personal gain in doing this. Just maintaining my employment. I have no prior charges of any kind. I didn't know what I was doing was wrong.

    What happens if I am charged? Will they come and arrest me? Then what?
    If I am arrested, will it be in IL, then they will send me to PA? I have no clue what to expect.

    You haven't shared enough information for us to be able to figure this out for you.

    Hire a lawyer. Talk over the specifics with your lawyer.

    What position did you hold?
    How can A and B sever ties if it is the same company?
    How did your friend start B?
    You say "I am being told that I am looking at embezzlement charges." by whom are you told?
    If you are arrested it will be in Illinois where the crime was committed, you would not be sent to PA.
