Embezzlement or employee theft is stealing from your employer.
In California, this is a serious fraud crime carried out by employees who are familiar with the organization and exploit that knowledge for illegal gain.
By definition, embezzlement is the "illegal transfer of money or property for personal use." The significant difference between embezzlement (employee theft) and other kinds of theft is that embezzled property is legally possessed or accessed by the person doing the embezzling; usually as part of the job responsibilities.
Under California Law, an employee fraud or embezzlement theft crime can be serious depending on the value of the property stolen and/or the criminal record of the defendant. An embezzlement crime may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.
Embezzlement sentencing can have life-changing consequences, including jail, prison, fines, counseling and restitution to the victim. The penalties will vary depending on many factors. For example:
(Note: The outcome of your criminal case will also depend on the defendant's prior criminal history.)
An embezzlement charge can also carry consequences regardless of the guilt or innocence of the defendant because accusations are embarrassing and can carry a lasting social stigma and limit future employment opportunities.
