Facing Embezzlement Charges?

Embezzlement is a form of white collar crime that occurs when there is theft or misappropriation of funds – for one’s own personal gain – that someone was entrusted to manage or monitor. Being charged with embezzlement can result in harsh and severe penalties; but if charged as a federal offense, the penalties are much more severe.

Consequences of Embezzlement

Indiana law punishes embezzlement according to the value of the money or property stolen. Depending on the circumstances of the offense, however, embezzlement can also be charged under federal law and offers no chance of parole.

Under state law, embezzlement penalties can include:

  • If the money or property is valued at less than $100,000: In addition to paying the value of the money/property back to the victim, defendants face $10,000 in fines, 6 months in jail and/or 18 months in prison.
  • If the money or property is valued at $100,000 or more: In addition to paying the value of the money/property back to the victim, defendants face 2-8 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

If charged as a federal offense, embezzlement penalties can include:

  • Felony embezzlement: Up to $250,000 in fines and/or up to 10 years of imprisonment
  • Misdemeanor embezzlement: Up to $100,000 in fines and/or up to one year of imprisonment
