Helping You Fight Embezzlement Charges

Embezzlement is a type of theft that occurs when an individual, who is left in charge of another’s money or property, misappropriates the money or property for his or her own personal gain. A key element in embezzlement is that the defendant must have had legal access, but not legal ownership, of the money or property.

If you’ve been arrested or accused of embezzlement, you could be facing years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. To combat these charges, you should not hesitate to put The Law Office of Jason Luong, PLLC on your side.

How is embezzlement punished?

The type of punishment you could be facing for embezzlement depends on the value of the goods or services you mishandled. For small amounts, you could be facing a Class C misdemeanor. A more serious offense can lead to more severe penalties.

If charged as a felony, penalties for embezzlement can include:

  • For property valued at $20,000-$100,000: Fines amounting to $10,000 and 2-10 years in prison.
  • For property valued at $100,000-$200,000: Fines amounting to $10,000 and 2-20 years in prison.
  • For property valued at $200,000 or more: Fines amounting to $10,000 and 5-99 years in prison.
