    My firm has found out that I have been embezzling ( fraud). Their accountant wants me to turn over any personal bank account details and to get copies of my bank statements for the time I have worked there.

    Should I do this and be cooperative or wait until charged? Also what are those criminal law charges and penalties likely to be, and should I engage a lawyer and which type before they happen?

    Thanks

    Contact a lawyer immediately and before you hand over anything to your firm or their accountant.
