Miami Embezzlement Attorney

White Collar Crimes & Embezzlement

Embezzlement is a white collar crime that involves stealing money, information, or any other assets that were entrusted to you. This usually takes place within a work environment, with the theft being against the employer or business. Embezzlement is a type of fraud and often is accomplished by the offender systematically taking small amounts of assets in order to not be detected.

This statutory offense differs depending on the state, but usually involves four factors. First, the act must have been fraudulent, meaning that the offender knowingly took the assets into their own possession. Second, conversion must occur in that the property owner's rights were violated. It is also important to remember that one cannot embezzle their own property, as part of the definition of the law is that it is taking the property of another. It is also only defined as embezzlement if the one who was stolen from had lawful possession of the property. If they only were managing the property, the offender would be charged with larceny rather than embezzlement.
