Divorce allegedly led to illegal activities and criminal charges

Circumstances sometimes make it difficult to resist the temptation to commit a crime in an effort to help resolve another problem. Unfortunately, even with the best intentions of returning ill-gotten funds, situations tend to get out of control quickly. A Colorado man is facing criminal charges after his recent arrest for an alleged theft of about $400,000.

The 42-year-old employee of a construction company is accused of ordering electronic equipment, such as tablets, computer monitors, laptops and cell phones, which he charged to the company. However, he then kept the merchandise. His employers say suspicion was aroused when bills for significant amounts of money arrived. They allege the theft occurred over a period of just more than two years.

The man's employment was terminated earlier this year. He claims he does not owe the full amount because he had already used a credit card to pay $36,000 to the company from where he ordered the cell phones. In an email that was attached to the arrest warrant, the accused man wrote that his divorce, alcohol abuse and health problems drove him to start the illegal activities, and it soon became overwhelming and uncontrollable.

Facing criminal charges is serious, and it can have devastating consequences. The punishment if a person is convicted of white collar crimes in Colorado is no less harsh than for other felonies -- if not more severe. The most logical step to take is to retain the services of an experienced criminal law attorney who can scrutinize the charges and the evidence before working on a defense strategy aimed at achieving the best possible outcome.
