Anyone who has worked with the monetary funds of their company or employer has probably thought about how nice it would be to have that much money. Some employees go beyond just thinking about how nice it would be to have the money and devise plans to steal the money from their employer. Embezzlement is different from a classic theft case because it involves individuals that rightfully have access to the funds but then unlawfully convert them from funds they are in charge of or are holding into their own funds. This may seems like a small difference but in the eyes of the law it is a big difference and the law finds this difference important because they want to make sure people who are entrusted with money have incentives to remain trustworthy.
