Embezzlement is a crime in which the offender misuses funds or other valuables with which he or she had been entrusted. As such, embezzlement cases center on the fact that the defendant was given access to valuables, but not ownership, and then unlawfully used such valuables for his own benefit. An example of embezzlement would be a cashier at a fast food chain “borrowing” money from her till in order to cover her rent. Higher-end embezzlement cases involve company executives using company funds for personal gain.
