Embezzlement is a federal crime that entails the diverting or misappropriation of funds from an organization, estate, employer or other entity. Anyone who has regular access to the financial resources in question can be accused of embezzlement, including an accountant, bookkeeper, treasurer, trustee, executor, personal assistant, administrative assistant or manager. The first step following initial suspicion is an internal investigation, which can be followed by further discovery and charges by the federal government.
