What proof is needed for me to get convicted of embezzlement?

I'm fairly confident that the prosecution has little to no hard evidence against me. Was hoping someone had some familiarity with these types of cases and the evidence that they have seen used to convict someone. I'm being charged with embezzlement of a little over 3 million over the course of a year and a half.

    I am fairly sure that you have little knowledge of what the prosecutor has and what he can get as evidence against you. If he got an indictment or ran a felony hearing he has enough evidence to say "there is reasonable cause to believe you committed a felony" but perhaps not proof beyond a reasonable doubt. I have handled many such cases and if it is federal court you can be pretty sure they have the evidence. A state court prosecutor takes whatever charges the poilce give him, a federal prosecutor will not indict a marginal case.

    The proof would have to show the following:1. your ability to access the funds 2,. the exact amount taken 3. the dates taken 4. the method by which you took the money 5. any paper or electronic trail- get a good criminal lawyer-we do that kind of law.
