Financially motivated crimes such as embezzlement can have long-lasting, severe consequences. Many outcomes of white collar cases of this type are determined by the specific intent of the accused person.

Embezzlement and Fraud Charges Explained
Embezzlement is a type of fraud which occurs when a person, often an employee, redirects, deposits or transfers money or goods for personal profit.

Types of Ramifications for Embezzlement
The ramifications you face can vary greatly depending upon the amount of money or goods that were obtained in a fraudulent manner. At the very least, if found guilty, you will face restitution of the damages or losses suffered by the victim of the embezzlement. You can face additional fines, probation and imprisonment.
