What Are Common Examples Of Embezzlement?

Embezzlement can take many forms, but some common examples include:

  • A payroll clerk inflates work hours or creates a fake employee to collect extra wages
  • An accountant manipulates a company’s financial records to divert company funds into their personal bank account
  • A trustee diverts money from a trust or sells assets from the trust to shore up their own failing business
  • A nonprofit executive misappropriates grant money for their personal use
  • A public official redirects government money meant for community projects for their own use

A skilled attorney can develop a strategic defense strategy tailored to the specifics of your case, whether that involves challenging the evidence against you, questioning the legality of the investigation or demonstrating the lack of intent on your part. If a conviction is unavoidable, your embezzlement defense attorney can work to minimize the consequences by negotiating for probation and fines instead of imprisonment.
