Embezzlement Charges in Scranton

Embezzlement is a type of white collar crime involving the misappropriation of assets. In these situations, one person is placed in a position of trust and they typically abuse that position by misusing the property they have been entrusted with. Individuals who are charged with embezzlement may be investigated for taking money, inventory, or other supplies. The individuals who are accused of embezzlement typically have access to bank account information or petty cash.

If you or someone close to you is under investigation for embezzlement or has already been charged with embezzlement, it is vital that you retain representation from a defense attorney. Embezzlement charges have the potential to cripple your career, and even those individuals cleared of charges can have a difficult time professionally after their case has been resolved.

You will need a lawyer to do damage control and minimize the effects of these charges in your life.

White Collar Crimes in Pennsylvania

A conviction for embezzlement could mean time in prison, victim restitution, probation, losing your right to be bonded, court-ordered counseling, and large fines. The exact penalties will be based upon the severity of the offense, or the amount of money or assets said to be embezzled.

Embezzlement sentences will also be based upon the defendant's criminal record, and individuals with previous white collar crime convictions on their records will face worse penalties than first time offenders. To learn more about the laws and consequences for embezzlement, take a look at 18 Penn. Con. Stat. § 3903. These statutes contain the specific laws for embezzlement.

The potential penalties follow this breakdown:

Property with a value of less than $50

  • A fine of up to $2,500
  • Up to one year in jail
