Taking property from someone else with the intent of depriving them of that property constitutes a theft crime, however there are many ways in which this can be done. In some cases, those who have been entrusted with access to property may use that access to steal it. When theft occurs by someone held in a position of trust with access to that property, you have the unique white collar crime of embezzlement.

Penalties for Embezzlement Convictions in New York

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

Potential 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.
