Embezzlement And White Collar Crimes

Generally speaking, white collar crimes refer to crimes that involve the wrongful taking of another's money or property illegally and without force. Embezzlement and fraud are two categories of white collar crime that can lead to serious consequences like incarceration, fines, job termination and loss of personal reputation.

Many Virginia embezzlement cases take one of two forms:

  • Employees (including workers such as retail cashiers) who are accused of stealing from a business at which they work
  • Accounting, fundraising and management professionals, entrusted with financial responsibilities by their organizations, who are accused of stealing or misappropriating funds
