Ventura County Embezzlement Lawyer
Embezzlement occurs when an employee steals from his or her employer. This may be done by an employee in a position of power and responsibility, such as by a manager or accountant. However, any employee who deals with money and financial transactions may be able to commit embezzlement by taking money without the employer's authorization, usually for the purpose of personal gain.
Embezzlement may involve the theft of small amounts of money over a long period of time, complex financial transactions to hide missing money or possibly carrying out a plan to steal a large sum at once. California law classifies embezzlement involving more than $400 as a felony theft crime. If convicted, a defendant may face a minimum state prison sentence of 16 months. The defendant will also likely be ordered to pay back the money that was taken, which is known as restitution.
If accused of embezzlement, an employee will most likely face a financial audit and termination if the audit uncovers evidence of theft. Future employers may be also wary of hiring an employee who has a criminal record involving embezzlement.
