Embezzlement is technically a form of property theft, but it is often considered a white collar crime due to how the criminal violation is conducted. To commit embezzlement, one must be entrusted to manage the finances of another but instead use a portion of those finances for their own use.
Examples of embezzlement include:
- Cashier theft: Employees who work a cash register and take any of the money within for their personal gain are committing embezzlement.
- Corporate fund mismanagement: A more severe form of embezzlement involves a company manager, head, or executive mismanaging the business’s funds to make transactions that only benefit them. This form of embezzlement is usually how the crime will be categorized and charged.

Penalties for Embezzlement in Minnesota
Every state has its own penalties for an embezzlement conviction. Minnesota ranges the potential charges and punishments based on the amount of money allegedly embezzled. For example, embezzling more than $1,000 but less than $5,000 can result in a $10,000 fine and five years in prison if convicted. The penalties will only continue to escalate as the monetary amount in question does as well.
