Embezzlement in California

Embezzlement is described as fraudulently taking property that has been entrusted to you but belongs to another person, organization, or entity. People are often surprised to find they are facing charges when they borrowed money or property without the intention of keeping it. Under California law, this crime can either be classified as petty theft or grand theft, depending on the type of property and value.

Grand theft may be charged when the property:

  • Has a value of more than $950
  • Are firearms
  • Is an automobile

Embezzlement is known as a wobbler, which means it can either be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the value of the property and the specific situation. While a felony is a much more serious charge, any criminal charge will leave you with a criminal record and impact your ability to gain future employment. You should contact a Pasadena embezzlement lawyer as soon as possible to build a strong defense.

Legal Strategies for Embezzlement Charges

There are a few possible legal strategies that can be used to defend a client charged with embezzlement. Common legal defenses include false accusation, a lack of intent to commit a crime, and a belief that the defendant had a right to the property. Our Pasadena embezzlement attorney will assess your situation and work with you to develop the best strategy for your defense.
