Penalties for Embezzlement in California
Since embezzlement is essentially a
Cal. Pen. Code § 514 provides that embezzlement is to be punished in the manner prescribed
for theft of property that is the same value of the amount embezzled.
Also, if the offense was committed directly against the United States
government, it is a felony punishable by imprisonment in a state prison.
Embezzlement also ruins the offender's chances of ever being entrusted
with finances or assets again, not to mention damages their chances of
promotion or of obtaining the career of their choice. If you are facing
charges of embezzlement, don't take chances. Contact Lessem, Newstat
