Embezzlement Attorney in Los Angeles
Penalties for Embezzlement
There are many different white collar crimes including various types of fraud, RICO and embezzlement, each of which carries their own severe penalties and lasting effects. Embezzlement is the act of dishonestly removing, obtaining, or secreting the assets of another. This usually occurs when an individual, such as a spouse, slowly siphons out small amounts of money from an account that they have access too, such as their spouse’s bank account. This is generally done in such small amounts that the victim does not notice the loss. Depending on the amount of money, or the value of the assets that were taken, you could face penalties of hefty fines as well as one year in prison.
