Embezzlement is the theft of property and/or money by an individual or entity that is responsible for handling the assets. Embezzlement typically occurs in corporate settings and places of employment.
Embezzlement charges can carry serious consequences regardless of whether the defendant is guilty. Accusations of embezzlement are extremely embarrassing and can oftentimes ruin an individual or an entity’s reputation. Furthermore, an embezzlement conviction may result in hefty fines and/or a prison sentence of up to 20 years depending of the value of assets taken and other factors in the case.
