Embezzlement, or misappropriation, is a crime of property theft. This offense involved an individual in a position of trust (such as an employee) who steals money or property that was entrusted to them to manage or monitor. The defendant does not have ownership of this property, to taking it for themselves is a crime of embezzlement.

What is the difference between embezzlement and theft?

Although embezzlement is a type of theft, there are distinctions between the two crimes. The crime of theft is the intentional taking of someone else’s property without consent with the specific intent to permanently deprive the other of the possession. Embezzlement often involves an employee or representative of a company who funnels money through the company for his or her personal gain. This involves taking funds that were intended for one purpose (such as payment for goods or services) and pocketing them or funneling them to a purpose that the payer did not intend. The main difference between the two crimes is that in embezzlement, the employee is usually entrusted with the property by the employer.

What are some examples of embezzlement?

  • Skimming or under reporting money to a company and pocketing the difference
  • Creating payroll accounts for fake or phantom employees
  • Ponzi schemes involving fraudulent investments
  • Corporate Kiting

The penalties of embezzlement can be harsh, but if you are arrested and charged with embezzlement, it doesn’t mean that you’ll be convicted. Many who are charged are either falsely accused or part of a misunderstanding. If you or a loved one has been arrested for embezzlement in Florida, it is imperative¬†you contact my office.

I recently was in the classic wrong place at the wrong time scenario. I have used Glenn in the past and did not hesitate one second to contact him when everything went down. Within 3 weeks he already had my case dismissed! Glenn is the real deal and to be quite frank he is a beast of an attorney! If you are facing any legal issues pick up the... phone and call Glenn Roderman. From the first phone call I promise you will feel a sense of peace knowing that you have the best of the best in your corner! I cannot thank Glenn enough for everything he has done for me!read more

I HIRED GLENN RODERMAN TO HANDLE A LEGAL ISSUE. FROM THE FIRST FREE CONSULT HE OFFERED OVER THE PHONE, TO OUR FIRST IN PERSON MEETING, I FELT AT EASE AND KNEW I WAS IN GOOD HANDS. GLENN OFFERS DECADES OF VALUABLE LEGAL WISDOM. HIS VAST EXPERIENCE IN EITHER REPRESENTING THE PLAINTIFF OR DEFENDANT MAKES HIM VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXPERIENCED ON... BOTH SIDES OF ANY CASE. IT WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH GLENN. HE WAS HONEST, PATIENT, COMPASSIONATE, CARING, PROFESSIONAL, ASSERTIVE AND HARD WORKING. HE MADE HIMSELF AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS/CONCERNS DAY AND NIGHT, GAVE UP HIS WEEKENDS WHEN NEEDED AND MOST IMPORTANTLY OFFERED PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT THROUGHOUT MY CASE. I WRITE THIS GOOGLE REVIEW TO SAVE ANYONE FROM HIRING ANY OTHER ATTORNEY OTHER THAN GLENN RODERMAN. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY, A MORE DEDICATED, SEASONED, LOYAL AND HONORABLE LAWYER CANNOT BE FOUND!read more
