Sentences for the crime of embezzlement are always severe: a person is typically in a position of trust when they commit the act, and the courts take a serious view of this breach of trust.
It is a crime that often goes beyond handling cash and can involve electronic equipment to transfer and steal sums of money. Staff involved can range from managers to other employees in a position of trust. Crimes of embezzlement can involve detailed knowledge of an organization and its internal processes.
