Understanding Embezzlement Charges and Penalties

Embezzlement is a form of a Larceny charge that is mainly known as a theft crime. Generally, it involves the appropriation of another's property that is in your care. It is most frequently seen in the workplace. For example, an employee may take funds out of petty cash to pay a personal debt.

If you are charged with embezzlement in Connecticut, the penalties you face will depend on the amount of money involved. For crimes involving less than $2,000, embezzlement is a misdemeanor offense. If the charges involve more than $2,000, you can be charged with a felony offense, which carries significant penalties.
