Embezzlement is the theft of money from an employer. Embezzlement charges can result in serious penalties. Penalties for embezzlement include confinement in a county jail, state prison or federal prison. Embezzlement is often prosecuted aggressively because prosecutors hope to make examples out of those accused of committing embezzlement or any other white collar crime.
White collar crimes such as embezzlement are punished more severely than ever. Not only are CEOs who are accused of stealing millions seriously penalized, but so are other employees who may be accused of stealing comparatively small amounts of money.
The federal government, under President Obama’s guidance, recently created a white collar crime task force focused on many things including embezzlement. This new white collar crime task force has received significant government resources to combat embezzlement, Sherman Act, anti-trust violations, theft of trade secrets, mortgage fraud and any number of other white collar allegations.
