The crime of embezzlement is the fraudulent taking of personal property or money with which one has been entrusted. It commonly takes place in a workplace setting and is typically a crime committed by CEO?s of large corporations, managers, executives, politicians and anyone else that holds a powerful position within a company or organization. Embezzlement is considered a white collar crime in the state of California and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony offense. In order to be charged with the crime of embezzlement, proof must be shown that the property or money embezzled was not your original property. Embezzlement can also be considered fraud. If convicted of embezzlement, depending on the seriousness of the crime, you may be looking at a sentence including jail or prison time, monetary fines, restitution, probation, community service and/or house arrest.
