Larceny, Theft and Embezzlement Boston's Go-To Criminal Defense Law Firm

Boston Embezzlement Attorney

Handling Larceny, Theft & More

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.

Trusted Criminal Defense in Times of Uncertainty

It can be understandably unnerving to discover that you have been accused of larceny or embezzlement. Rather than let the stress of the situation affect you, you should react quickly and contact Boston White Collar Crimes Attorney Brad Bailey at Brad Bailey Law. He has the know-how and legal experience necessary to prepare your case, challenge loss amounts and calculations through forensic accounting, and scrutinize the prosecution’s most critical documents and evidence. He can do all of this and more for your case, and his history of success shows that he can do it exceedingly well.

Noteworthy larceny, theft, and embezzlement cases he has handled include:

  • United States v. Angela Buckborough, MA’s largest federal private embezzlement prosecution
  • Commonwealth v. Lawler, a $3M larceny/embezzlement case involving a public charity
  • United States v. James Dorman, a Staples Executive accused of fraud/theft
  • United States v. Handoj, theft/possession of nearly $1M in fiber optics
  • Com v. Fraser/Fraser, state embezzlement case by company bookkeeper/employee a advisor
  • Com v Cahill, larceny by false pretenses
  • Com v Smiley-Wynter, embezzlement/larceny by credit card.

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.
