If you’ve been charged with embezzlement, every minute matters. You need an attorney by your side who has expertise in fighting and winning embezzlement cases. The alternative is unthinkable. Once you’re convicted of embezzlement, it’s hard to imagine that you’ll ever be hired again. And that’s after you get out of prison and pay restitution.
In Arizona, the type of embezzlement charge depends upon the value and type of the property or money stolen. If the value is less than $1,000, the embezzlement is considered a class 1 misdemeanor. At the other end of the spectrum is embezzlement of $25,000 or more, which is a class 2 felony punishable by up to five years in prison. In between are various class 3, 4, 5, and 6 felonies. It should also be noted that theft of a firearm or an animal to be used for animal fighting is considered a class 6 felony regardless of value.
