What is embezzlement?
Embezzlement occurs when a person steals money or funds that he or she is entrusted to hold. Embezzlement can occur on a minor scale — through the theft of small sums of money from a cash register or safe — or on a large scale through Ponzi schemes that seek to deprive a party or parties of a substantial amount of money.
In many cases, individuals who embezzle do so because of a financial hardship. In fact, many convicted embezzlers claim to have planned on paying the funds back. None of this matters to law enforcement. If you are accused of embezzlement, you face misdemeanor or felony charges depending on the amount of money police accuse you of stealing. At Boyce Holleman & Associates, we have more than 60 years of experience representing clients facing white collar crime charges. Each criminal defense lawyer at our firm knows how to build a defense to combat the charges against you.
Common types of embezzlement
Our firm takes on a variety of white collar crime cases. However, below are examples of some of the most common forms of embezzlement our Biloxi lawyers handle:
- Skimming: This crime is the act of stealing money from a business or company before it is recorded.
- Fraudulent disbursements: Check tampering, billing schemes, payroll schemes, expense reimbursement schemes and register disbursements are often used to deprive a business of funds.
- Cash larceny: This is theft of money after a company has recorded it.
