Power of Attorney theft is a type of financial exploitation or mismanagement of a victim’s income and assets. Instances of POA theft usually transpire when a person is given Power of Attorney over an incapacitated or vulnerable adult’s possessions, property, money, or bank accounts. Arizona laws regarding Power of Attorney theft are very ambiguous. Therefore, it is imperative for those facing this type of crime to contact a Phoenix white collar crime attorney who can help protect their rights. Even if you ascertain that you are innocent, you will still need a strong defense in court to combat the allegations against you. An attorney with experience in Arizona white collar crimes, who also knows the prosecution on a deeper level, can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. Furthermore, a Phoenix white collar crime attorney can diligently scrutinize your case to determine whether or not financial exploitation or POA theft truly occurred.
The penalties handed down to those convicted of POA theft in Arizona can be ruthless depending on the circumstances involved in your case.
