What is the definition of embezzlement?
Many people ask, what is the definition of embezzlement? Well, embezzlement is effectively when someone is being accused of taking something of value from someone who they don’t have the liberty to take it from. Embezzlement is a theft-related offense. Most commonly an embezzlement offense would be a felony. In Pennsylvania when we’re looking at theft-related offenses, it’s really the amount that’s allegedly taken.
Dealing with an embezzlement charge is very serious and very difficult. As a result, it is very important for a client to reach out to an attorney immediately. This is because it is very common that when someone is accused of embezzlement, it’s because they have some authority over proceeds or money. And the employer is looking for a scapegoat, they’re looking for someone to blame.
