Embezzlement - A Serious Crime

Embezzlement is a huge felony. It is used to describe misappropriation of property from another individual or organization. In other words, it is the theft of money or property by a person who does not have lawful authority to do so.


The crime of embezzlement was originally introduced in Criminal law. It was named "embezzlement" because embezzlers were embezzling the property of another person. While "embezzlement" may not have been an exact definition, there is no doubt that embezzlement can be considered a theft. Theft is defined as "the unlawful taking or receiving of property of another".

The crime of embezzlement occurs when a person takes money or property with the intent to deprive the other party of it. It is sometimes called embezzlement of a trade secret. Therefore, if a person takes funds to use to further his own business, he would be charged with embezzlement. Embezzlement can also be applied to labor practices. Therefore, if a person used workers to do his job, he would be charged with embezzlement.

The use of embezzlement in criminal law has several different aspects. First, the person who embezzles is required to know that the crime is taking place. If a person does not intend to steal, he is not guilty of embezzlement.

Next, the criminal law requires proof that the person committed the crime. Without it, he will be guilty of no crime. This is called a mens rea. Usually, the mens rea required is "criminal intent." This means that the person needs to know that he is doing wrong, and he needs to want to do wrong. In criminal law, the crime of embezzlement is one of the most frequently charged crimes. This is because of the many ways that it can be committed. Some examples are "swindling the United States out of billions in trade credits" by United States officials. In "Enron", a lot of people were charged with embezzlement.

You can be charged with embezzlement if you receive a portion of funds from your company, if you embezzle funds for personal use, or if you commit a crime using funds of another person. Therefore, you need to hire a criminal defense lawyer who knows how to do embezzlement cases. You must also make sure that the lawyer has experience with such cases.

An embezzlement attorney is necessary if you are charged with embezzlement. The lawyer will review the facts of the case, determine the defendant's defense, and determine the potential penalty.
