What is Embezzlement?

For a crime to be considered embezzlement, the accused individual must have had permission to access property or funds and used it for their own advantage to take funds or property. For example, if you worked as a company’s chief financial officer and used your access to the company’s assets to steal them, this would likely be considered embezzlement.

What are The Penalties for Embezzlement in New York?

There are multiple degrees of embezzlement, or grand larceny, which is treated as a white collar crime since it is typically non-violent. The punishment you receive for a conviction will be based on the amount of money involved,

Below are the penalties you may experience under New York law:

  • 4th degree: If the amount involved was between $1,000 and $3,000, it will be treated as a Class E felony, punishable by up to 4 years in prison.
  • 3rd degree: If the amount involved was between $3,000 and $50,000, it will be treated as a Class D felony, punishable by up to 7 years in prison.
  • 2nd degree: If the amount involved was between $50,000 and less than $1,000,000, it will be treated as a Class C felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
  • 1st degree: If the amount involved was valued over $1,000,000, it will be treated as a Class B felony, punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

As you can see, the penalties for a conviction are potentially very steep, which is why it is essential to speak to an attorney as soon as possible.
