What is Embezzlement in California Law?
Embezzlement is the crime of appropriating or secretly accumulating assets (money, property, or other types of assets) by someone who has been entrusted with those assets.
Embezzlement often includes stealing from an employer or a large organization. It can range from simple acts like keeping a few extra dollars from the cash till once in a while to elaborate schemes for funneling money from trust accounts. For example, a financial advisor handling or appropriating investor funds in an illegal manner would be textbook embezzlement, which is also often considered a white collar crime.
In the legal sense, embezzlement is classified as a fraud crime that involves a process called conversion. This simply means that the embezzler converts funds or property to his or her own use while interfering with the rightful owner's control over the funds/property. This means that embezzlement practices don't necessarily involve the direct stealing of funds, though this is a situation that may occur in some instances.
