Penalties of Embezzlement in New York

Like other theft crimes, embezzlement charges are primarily levied based on the value of the property stolen in each instance, but the nature of the victim and the type of property stolen could also affect the exact charges.

The penalties for being found guilty of embezzlement in New York can include:

  • Large fines; maximums ranging anywhere from $1,000 to $30,000, or up to double the value of the property embezzled
  • Prison sentences; maximum jail sentences ranging between one and 25 years
  • Possible victim restitution

Because of the serious nature of white collar crimes, prosecutors frequently try to seek maximum possible penalties. This means that you should not hesitate to seek legal counsel from a knowledgeable defense attorney who can put the law on your side.
