      Embezzlement Under Federal Law

      Embezzlement is viewed as the misappropriation of funds or properties entrusted to an individual and misused for their personal benefit. A crucial fact to remember is that the individual accused of embezzlement had a legal right to access or possess the assets but does not actually own them. In general, proving an embezzlement charge requires the prosecution to identify five key elements, including:

      • fraudulent
      • conversion
      • of the property
      • of another, when the accused had
      • legal possession of/access to the property

      Reasonable Doubt

      In such cases, the justice system must determine each element of the embezzlement crime beyond a reasonable doubt. The reasonable doubt requirement is the highest burden of proof in the US justice system. Proving a fact beyond a reasonable doubt means that if any doubt exists that might influence a reasonable individual’s belief that the accused is guilty, then a jury or judge must find the defendant not guilty.

      An expert,experienced DC embezzlement attorney will be able to evaluate all legal options at your disposal and proceed to mount the strongest defense possible under the facts and circumstances in a specific case.

      Embezzlement Crimes and Penalties

      Chapter 31 of Title 18 of the United States Code stipulates some federal laws prohibiting embezzlement. These laws cover a wide range of prohibited actions, including scenarios where an individual or a government employee with access to federal property misuses the property for their benefit.

      It also covers situations where an individual is accused of embezzlement of money from a business involved in interstate commerce, like embezzlement linked to funds or banking activities linked with insurance, credit, lending institutions, medical products, livestock, other employee health care program, or benefit plan.

      For instance, an employee who works at the Federal Reserve Bank and receives Federal Reserve funds could be charged for embezzling government property, as could a government contractor who moves government property from one location to another. Another example of a similar situation would be when a medical insurance program admin takes premiums paid by the company’s workers for their benefit instead of buying the appropriate insurance coverage.

      Other prohibited activities under Chapter 31 of Title 18 of the United States Code include, but are not limited to:

      • Embezzlement of public records, property, or money is punishable by ten years in prison or a $250,000 fine for crimes involving $1,000 or more. An individual faces up to one year in prison or a fine of up to $100,000 for crimes involving less than $1,000. 18 USC Section 641.
      • Embezzlement by agents, employees, or officers of the federal government, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison or the amount embezzled or a fine of $250,000 (whichever is more) for crimes involving $1,000 or more. An individual faces up to 1 year in prison or fines of up to $1,000 for crimes involving $1,000 or less. 18 USC Section 643.
      • Embezzlement by bankers who intentionally receive unlawfully deposits of public money, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison or the amount embezzled or a fine of $250,000 (whichever is more), for crimes involving $1,000 or more. An individual faces up to 1 year in prison or fines of up to $1,000 for crimes involving $1,000 or less. 18 USC Section 644.
      • Embezzlement of materials and tools for counterfeiting is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, or both. 18 USC Section 642.
      • Embezzlement by federal court staff is punishable by imprisonment for up to 1 year or fines of up to $1,000 for crimes involving $1,000 or more. An individual faces up to 10 years in prison or the amount embezzled or a fine of $250,000 (whichever is more) for crimes involving $1,000 or more. 18 USC Section 645.
