What Is Embezzlement?

Embezzlement occurs when a person inappropriately spends money that has been entrusted to him or her. For example, a person who has been placed in charge of a trust fund may spend that money on himself or herself instead of saving it for its intended purposes. Another example is a corporate worker who spends a company’s money on personal items.

Embezzlement is a serious crime that can be penalized with steep fines, community service, probation, and even jail time. If you have been accused of this or any other crime, you need a lawyer who is ready to fight for you.
