The Crime of Embezzlement: Facts
Under Illinois statute 720 ILCS 5/16-1, a person commits theft when knowingly exerting unauthorized control over the property of another party. In most cases, unless the value is under $500, felony charges will be filed. A conviction will include jail or prison time as well as financial penalties, and carries the added punishment of living as a convicted felon upon release from prison. Professional licenses are lost, along with the ability to practice your profession. It is crucial that you have defense counsel that brings top level defense skills to the table.
