Iowa woman accused of embezzlement of over $24,000

When someone in Iowa stands accused of a white collar crime, the investigation is an altogether different type than what might be involved in, say, a home burglary. There are rarely witnesses, fingerprints or other types of physical evidence. Rather, the investigation generally involves officials trying to build a case based mostly around paperwork. Such appears to be the situation in Iowa, where a woman is facing embezzlement charges.

A guilty plea to Iowa criminal charges doesn't always mean guilt

Just because an Iowa resident pleads guilty in court doesn't necessarily mean that he or she is, in fact, guilty of illegal activity. Unfair as it may seem, it is not uncommon for individuals facing criminal charges to decide they would prefer to plead guilty, as doing so may result in a much quicker legal process. Additionally, the sentences for pleading guilty are often more lenient than if a defendant had chosen to plead innocent and then been convicted anyway.
