California Embezzlement Crimes
Embezzlement involves taking money, services or property for yourself or your own benefit when you are legally entrusted to possess, manage or watch it for someone else. It can be as simple as stealing some petty cash or a few office supplies, or as complicated as a sustained effort to steal money by transferring cash out of business accounts for your personal use.
The amount of money allegedly embezzled determines the seriousness of the potential penalties, and whether the offense is a misdemeanor or felony level charge.
In California, the act of embezzlement may encompass a number of different legal charges, including, theft, larceny, fraud, forgery, identity theft, bad checks, credit card fraud, and other white collar criminal charges. There are different statutes under state laws that cover embezzlement and related financial theft, and there could be other charges if you are prosecuted in federal court for embezzlement across state lines.
