About Embezzlement Charges

Embezzlement, or larceny by employee, is based on the employment relationship. The basic concept is that of master-servant. An employee is said to have the trust and confidence of the employer. This would include the trust placed in the employee to care for the money and merchandise or other property owned by the employer. When an employee defrauds the employer by converting such goods to his or her own use with intent to steal it, it is said that the trust relationship has been breached or broken.

Penalties for Embezzlement in South Carolina

It is important to note that if a theft of this nature occurs, the value is not what makes the charge a felony. It is the employment relationship. Therefore, even a very small sum of money, or a very inexpensive piece of merchandise will be charged as a felony. Again, the concept is that the employee is taking advantage of the trust and confidence which the employer has placed in him or her.

When accused of embezzling larger amounts of money, the level of the felony is elevated to a much higher level. It also carries a much more severe potential penalty.

No matter the gravity of your charges, DeCurtins Law Office is prepared to defend you vigorously. In addition to working with the District Attorney on embezzlement charges, Mr. DeCurtins attempts to invoke a discussion with the employer, in order to obtain a better result for his clients. Because the penalty phase varies, and prison time is an option, it is vital to retain a criminal defense lawyer.
