Embezzlement is a type of theft offense. Generally, it involves allegations of misappropriated money, goods or other items of value entrusted to the care of the accused.
Typically considered a white-collar crime, embezzlement charges are frequently leveled against employees with access to money – such as cashiers, bank tellers, accountants and bookkeepers. High-level executives can also come under investigation when money turns up missing or financial records don’t add up. Regardless of the circumstances, embezzlement is a serious charge that can carry a potentially lengthy prison sentence.
Like other types of white-collar crimes, embezzlement charges can derail your reputation and career. Prospective employers often interpret any type of theft conviction, and particularly embezzlement, as a reflection of dishonesty.
