Are You Facing Charges for Embezzlement?
Embezzlement occurs when a person wrongfully takes property and converts it to his or her own use. It is different than burglary, however, because the property is acquired legally, but is later converted to another’s personal use. This typically occurs among people who have fiduciary relationships. In short, embezzlement is a form of fraud.
