Former municipal construction code official arrested for embezzlement November 7, 2009

Lisa Hare, the former assistant construction code official in Hamilton Township, NJ has been charged with second degree official misconduct.  She is alleged to have taken money on several occasions between April 2004 and February 2007.   The money was intended for building permits that should have been deposited in township’s bank accounts.

She left the job in 2007 and the financial irregularities were reported to 
police earlier this year. She turned herself in to authorities on Friday.

The timing of this is interesting.  I would like to know more about why she left.  I would want to examine all of her bank records from 2004 to 2007.  Other issues to look into:  any witnesses, were these checks or cash, what kind of records are there and can I get them now instead of later, any employment issues or disputes? 

When it comes to white collar crime, it is either open and shut or its a lot of fun.  Luckily for her, the old official misconduct charge should apply which will cut down on the prison time she would face.  This is because the crime allegedly occurred before the statute was changed.  Hopefully she gets a good attorney.

If you are charged with official misconduct, call me today to discuss your case.
