Embezzlement in Georgia

Embezzlement in Georgia

Embezzlement is a term that is used to describe a particular type of white-collar crime. It typically applies to situations in which an employee or private citizen took advantage of a situation and took a company or person’s property for private use.

Embezzlement and the Legal System

Embezzlement is one of the most common white-collar crimes. However, it is not a uniform charge and can take many forms depending on what is stolen.

The value of what is stolen is immensely important when determining what consequences that the charge can have.  If the total amounts to less than $500, there is a maximum of one year in prison and a maximum charge of $1000. If the total amounts to more than $500, it can mean up to ten years in prison. In general, the more that is stolen, the more severe the consequences can be.

The circumstances of the embezzlement also make a difference. Stealing from public funds or from the elderly can lead to modified and more severe charges.
