What Is Embezzlement?

Embezzlement occurs when a person or business trusted to manage another person’s money or property misuses those assets for their own gain. While these allegations often happen in a business setting, embezzlement can occur in any setting where the property owner trusts another person with their possessions or money. Embezzlement charges may include stealing funds or property, transferring ownership of assets without permission, and various other actions.

Embezzlement charges can have a severe impact on your life. In California, embezzlement charges that involve property valued at $950 or less are a misdemeanor. These misdemeanor charges could result in up to six months in jail and fines totaling as much as $1,000.

Charges that involve more valuable property, a motor vehicle, or a firearm are grand theft and could be charged as a felony. These charges could lead to up to three years in jail and more significant fines. In addition to these direct consequences, having an embezzlement charge on your criminal record could also have a long-term impact on your career.

Embezzlement charges are often particularly complex and require a detail-focused approach to create an effective legal defense. A competent criminal defense lawyer can help you understand your options and create a comprehensive legal strategy.
