Embezzlement Defense

Have you been arrested for embezzlement in Round Rock?

The easiest way to think about embezzlement is a type of financial theft done by an employee. Some classify it as a theft crime, but it is often categorized as a white collar crime. The crime involves an individual taking property that was entrusted to them by an employer. For example, an employee at a retail store taking money from the cash register or a bank teller taking money from a customer's account.

In order to be charged with embezzlement, the prosecutor will need to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you have:

  • Taken money or goods;
  • Without consent from the owner;
  • With the intent to deprive the owner of the property;
  • Violated a special position of trust;

Embezzlement Penalties
