Embezzlement Charges in Brighton


Embezzlement is a "white collar crime" that involves dishonestly using assets or money that belong to another individual or company. Generally the money or other assets were entrusted to the individual facing embezzlement charges. This is a form of financial fraud that carries heavy penalties.

At my legal practice, the Russell Defense Firm, I am known for my ability to get a case dismissed prior to trial, which allows the defendant to avoid court, and walk away unscathed. If you need a criminal defense attorney that knows how to get results, you have come to the right place. Allow me to provide you with a free consultation today.


In order for an individual to be charged with embezzlement, the prosecution must satisfy the three elements.

  • First: That the defendant, while in a position of trust or confidence, was entrusted with possession of personal property belonging to another person or entity;

  • Second: That the defendant took that property, or hid it, or converted it to his (her) own use, without the consent of the owner; and

  • Third: That the defendant did so with the intent to deprive the owner of the property permanently.

A good example of this case is Commonwealth v. Kenneally, 10 Mass. App. Ct. 162 (1980).
