What Makes An Embezzlement Charge
Embezzlement is a crime that means a person used their position of financial trust to secure financial gain. This is a pretty wide definition, but generally includes such actions as:
- Altering records to keep money
- Sending payments to fake accounts
- Cashing checks made out to the company and pocketing the money
- Abusing an expense account
- Selling trade secrets
Anytime a person misuses any asset of a company for financial gain, it’s embezzlement. However, the restrictions get fuzzier and fuzzier the further up the ladder of authority you go.
That said, even if you think the allegations against you seem flimsy, the state must have clear, compelling evidence before they bring a charge. You deserve a skilled attorney defending you.
