Embezzlement is a type of property theft which occurs when a person – who was entrusted to manage or monitor another individual’s money or property – steals all or a portion of that money or property for their own personal gain. The person committing the crime must possess access to another’s money or property, not legal ownership of it.
If you were arrested or accused of embezzlement in Rhode Island, The Law Office of Thomas C. Thomasian, Esq. is ready to help get your life back on track. Attorney Thomasian and his firm can thoroughly review your case and recommend the strongest course of legal action.

However, if the money/property stolen has a value of $100 or more, it is punishable by a maximum prison sentence of 20 years and a fine of up to $50,000 (or up to three times the value of the money/property embezzled).
