Boston's Go-To Criminal Defense Law Firm
When someone commits a theft crime through or involving their own business or the business of another, it can be considered as either the federal crime of larceny or the federal crime of embezzlement.
- Larceny: The act of taking or carrying away the property of another or another group without lawful authority.
- Embezzlement: Stealing or irresponsibly using money that you have been entrusted with through official channels.
While each of these offenses can be broken down into numerous specific categories, they are most commonly considered to be fraud. If you are convicted of fraud charges for larceny, theft, or embezzlement, you may be facing a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison. The smallest amount of money stolen that can be considered larceny is $250, and it will still carry a 10 year prison sentence upon conviction.

Larceny by Stealing or Embezzlement
Criminal larceny by stealing is somewhat of a straightforward case. The prosecution will need to prove that you stole monies or property, much like they would attempt to do in a theft or burglary case. When criminal larceny is allegedly committed through embezzlement, it can be more difficult for the prosecution to show that you took company funds for personal or illegitimate use. In some cases, the accused simply misunderstood their role within the company or what the funds were to be used for; without the intent to commit embezzlement, a conviction may be impossible.
