Embezzlement vs. Other Theft Crimes
The major difference between embezzlement and larceny or theft is that the accused embezzler is entrusted with the control of the money or property that allegedly was stolen. Embezzlement may also involve intricate cover-up strategies designed to divert accountability if the primary offender or offenders are caught. The prosecution will be working to gather evidence against you, which is why it is important to hire a skilled Los Angeles embezzlement attorney to protect your rights.
