Definition of Embezzlement:

Rhode Island Code Chapter 11-41-3 defines Embezzlement as the following:

  • When someone is entrusted with property or finances
  • This individual in authority utilizes the property (whether money or something of value), for his or her own use or benefit

Many embezzlement cases take place in the workplace, and are marked by the entity of trust. Usually the person who is embezzling is in a position of authority to access money or property, and he or she misuses the funds for their own benefit.

As an example, a financier wires funds into their account each month. This is a classic case of embezzlement.

Another typical illustration are when accounts have been setup by businesses for employees’ use. If a gas card is assigned for example, an employee can easily be targeted for embezzlement if he/she can’t prove the gas was used for business-related use only.

Also, officials in financial institutions may include:

  • A clerk
  • Agent
  • An executor
  • An administrator
  • Others in authority

Even so, accusations of embezzlement are quite common.

Where’s the proof?

The Rhode Island Law Offices of John R. Grasso will investigate the evidence, to determine the best defense for your case.

Embezzlement falls under the category of theft crimes, and is treated or penalized as larceny within Rhode Island.

What Are the Consequences of Rhode Island Embezzlement Charges?

  • Up to $50,000 in fines, or up to three times the value of the embezzlement (sentencing is administered by which penalty is greater). Guilty parties may also be subject to:
  • Up to 20 years in prison

What are the exceptions to such extravagant fines and charges?

  • Up to $1,000 in fines, and/or:
  • Up to 1 year in jail
