Theft By Fraud And Embezzlement Charges
An “embezzlement” charge is based on allegations of taking another person’s money while it was entrusted in your care. Examples of this include an accountant or bookkeeper who is entrusted with funds owned by a company but steals funds for him or herself. Sometimes this is done through an illegal transfer of money. Other allegations can include falsifying records, statements, creating false bills or vendor accounts.
In some cases, if you pay restitution for the embezzlement or theft charge, you may be able to avoid jail or have the charge reduced to a misdemeanor.
