Embezzlement charges filed against former city official

Reportedly, an investigation was launched into the activities of a former city district manager in Colorado. The investigation ultimately led to the man's arrest and a court appearance on embezzlement charges. Court documents allege the man kept cash paid to him for water, instead of depositing those payments into the appropriate Metro District bank account.

The investigation followed discrepancies apparently discovered by the Metro District. It is alleged that the former district manager committed embezzlement and theft from May 2017 through Sept. 30, 2018. The man was charged with felony theft and embezzlement for amounts ranging from $20,000 to $100,000. Investigators say thorough investigations were conducted before the arrest took place.

According to the court documents, at least two Metro District customers made cash payments for utilities. The defendant allegedly issued handwritten receipts for the payments. Investigators claim they could not find any evidence to show that those funds were paid over to the Metro District, or deposited into its bank account.

Anyone who faces embezzlement or other white collar crimes charges in Colorado might be unsure of what steps to take to protect themselves. The sensible thing to do would be to retain legal counsel as soon as possible, even when it becomes clear that an investigation is underway. An experienced criminal defense attorney can protect the legal rights of the client from the onset and launch an independent investigation. White collar crimes accusations typically involve masses of paper trails to follow, which is best done by a skilled attorney. The lawyer can then devise a defense strategy that aims to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.
