Find out about your case

Embezzlement is the theft of money or property by an employee from an employer, or by an entrusted person who was charged with holding or managing funds.

Embezzlement, or wrongfully using another person’s money or property for personal gain, has elements of both fraud and theft and can be observed as such by our Texas laws.

When the District Attorney’s office determines whether embezzlement charges rise to a felony level, the circumstances of the case — including the amount of money involved — will dictate their approach to holding the individual charged with theft or the misappropriation of funds accountable for their actions.

If you are being investigated for embezzlement, or are charged with embezzling funds from your employer, contact our experienced Houston criminal defense attorneys at the Nava Law Group, P.C. today to learn how we can design a proper defense for your unique circumstances.
