Understanding Embezzlement

Embezzlement is a financial crime that occurs when an individual entrusted with managing or overseeing someone else's money or property misappropriates those assets for personal gain. Common scenarios include employees siphoning company funds, trustees mishandling trust accounts, or even family members misusing assets within familial trusts. Embezzlement often involves a breach of trust, making it a particularly complex and sensitive legal issue.

Embezzlement Charges in Omaha

In Omaha, embezzlement is a serious offense that falls under the broader category of theft crimes. The severity of the charges and potential penalties depends on the value of the misappropriated property:

  • Misdemeanor Embezzlement: If the value of the misappropriated property is less than $500, the offense is typically charged as a Class I misdemeanor. Penalties may include up to one year in county jail and fines.

  • Felony Embezzlement: If the value of the misappropriated property exceeds $500, the offense is charged as a felony. Felony embezzlement carries more severe consequences, including substantial fines and potential imprisonment, depending on the value of the assets involved.
