Embezzlement charges may come from the state of California or they may be brought by the federal government. Federal charges may arise in situations where the property allegedly embezzled is deemed connected to a federally-regulated market, a federal program or interstate commerce. At the federal level, cases may allege theft of supplies and tools to counterfeit money or other government documents, theft of artwork or failure to deposit or safeguard federal government funds.
Additionally, federal embezzlement cases may allege theft by employees of a bank, theft from benefit plans, theft of government property, misappropriation of public funds or even theft of livestock. It may be necessary to mount a sophisticated legal defense focused on those facts that are in the defendant's favor. If you have been accused of embezzlement in a federal case, an experienced attorney may be able to assist you.
