Texas Embezzlement Charges and Penalties
Embezzlement is theft by a person in a position of trust. These charges usually involve an employee accused of stealing from an employer. Embezzlement may be a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the total value of the stolen property. In any case, the consequences of a conviction are serious.
