What Penalties Could You be Facing?

Embezzlement can be charged as a state or federal offense, depending on the circumstances of the crime. Under Missouri law, the severity of penalties depend on the value of the money or property stolen. Both federal and state penalties will include a fine and jail or prison time.

  • If the money/property is valued at more than $500, but less than $25,000: Up to 7 years in prison and a fine of $5,000, or up to double the value of the money or property embezzled
  • If the money/property is valued at $25,000 or more: Up to 15 years in prison and fines up to $5,000 or double the value of what was embezzled

If charged as a federal offense, embezzlement penalties can include:
