Embezzlement in Virginia
Most embezzlement cases involve people who work for, or with, others and are entrusted with funds or the access to them. If an employee, for example, takes money from the register and intends to keep it for his own use, he is embezzling money. In another situation, if an employee at a store uses a special, customer-only discount without permission, the employee may be guilty of embezzlement.
Finally, in another situation, if a person fails to record funds that the employer receives in payment of services to the employer, and instead cashes the check, does not record the payment and takes the cash, that also is embezzlement. Taking office supplies, toilet paper, or paper towels, for example, for personal use without the employer’s permission could also be charged as embezzlement.
