Embezzlement involves a theft crime involving a person in a position of trust.
Embezzlement involves a theft crime involving a person in a position of trust. Considered a ‘white-collar’ crime committed by business employees and corporate executives, it garners little sympathy among jurors and can result in potentially lengthy prison sentences. At the VanNoy Firm, our Dayton embezzlement attorneys have the experience you need when facing these charges to help strategize a strong defense.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) defines embezzlement as a type of fraud in which a person breaches their duty regarding the property they were entrusted with. This generally involves funneling money from the assets belonging to another into your own accounts, often in small amounts over a period of time. Four distinct factors must be shown to prove embezzlement in court:

Other factors that will likely influence sentencing include the person or entity targeted and the severity of the breach of trust.
