What is embezzlement?

In layman’s terms, embezzlement is the act of stealing funds or capital from one’s trust or from an employer. A defendant can be accused of embezzlement if they have: 

– Falsified records to conceal illegal activity.

– Stolen small amounts of money over an extended period of time.

– Completed non-registered sales in which a customer pays, but the transaction is not recorded.

– Created phantom vendors or employees in order to cash or write checks in secret.
