What is embezzlement under Minnesota law? Why is this such a devastating charge?

Embezzlement is a situation typically where an employee is placed in a positon of trust. Now as a general rule, all employees to some extent enjoy a level of trust with respect to their employer. But with respect to embezzlement it’s typically the taking of funds, sometimes property but usually it’s taking of funds, money, and then diverting that money that would go to the employer, let’s say it’s a corporation. That money would be taking by the employee and somehow deposited into that particular employee’s bank account or some other bank account like checking account or perhaps what’s happening is the employee is stealing checks and thereby writing checks either to himself, a friend, or a relative. Having those checks cashed when in fact, the employee actually has no legitimate right to do that.
