Conviction Has Serious Consequences

Embezzlement is a type of financial fraud that begins with a person who has legitimate access to money or property. The action becomes criminal when the person entrusted with the money converts it for their own use. Embezzlement can range from small amounts of money to millions of dollars illegally obtained through elaborate schemes and illegal activity.

Some examples of embezzlement may include:

  • Caring for an elderly or incapacitated family member and taking their money or property
  • A cashier taking money from the register
  • Employees creating false bills for vendors and taking the money
  • Financial advisors or lawyers stealing clients’ money
  • Ponzi schemes designed to defraud investors

The penalties for conviction depend on the amount of money or value of the property in question. When the amount is less than $250, the penalty can include up to 2.5 years in prison and a fine of up to $600. For amounts greater than $250, a defendant may be facing up to 5 years in prison and $25,000 in fines. In addition to criminal penalties, embezzlement can be pursued in civil court and you could be forced to pay restitution and face tax penalties.
