Embezzlement

Embezzlement is still charged as a theft, and the same standards regarding the value of the property that apply to grand theft and petty theft apply to embezzlement. A typical example of embezzlement would be if a stock broker received $10,000 and instead of putting the money into the client’s investment account, he puts the money into his personal checking account. The punishment for embezzlement is the same as that which applies to general theft charges.
