Embezzlement is the fraudulent appropriation by a person to his or her own use of property or money entrusted to that person's care but owned by someone else. Embezzlement occurs when a person who has lawful possession of another's money or property fraudulently converts that money or property. In other words, the wrongdoer, often an employee, trustee, fiduciary, or agent, acquires possession of the property lawfully and then converts the property to his or her own use.
Regardless of the degree or the amount of the embezzlement, being convicted of embezzlement has federal consequences. The federal government has strict laws that prohibit white collar crimes like embezzlement. White collar crimes like embezzlement cause the United States' economy millions of dollars, and, therefore, the government has implemented harsher legal consequences for all white collar crimes, including embezzlement.
