Pennsylvania's Embezzlement Laws

Pennsylvania does not have one specific embezzlement law. Instead, embezzlement falls under a number of different laws describing different types of theft.

Some alleged actions that could cause a prosecutor to bring criminal charges include:

  • Taking another party's property
  • Gaining ownership of property through deception
  • Failing to fully pay for an acquired piece of property

During an embezzlement case, the burden is on the prosecution to prove that you intended to deprive someone of their property. Our highly qualified criminal defense attorneys know how to help you establish a strong defense.
