The federal conspiracy statute, 18. U.S.C. § 371 is the staple of federal prosecutors in most criminal cases that involve more than one defendant. In a very simple way, federal conspiracy is an agreement between several persons to commit any federal crime, sort of a “partnership in criminal purposes” as described by Justice Holmes over 100 years ago.
Embezzlement and Theft
Embezzlement and theft are similar and at the same time different crimes. Embezzlement is theft of property by someone who was entrusted to manage or monitor someone else’s money or property. The person who commits embezzlement has legal access to that money but is not the owner. An example would be an accountant, a bookkeeper, or a business officer.
