"Spousal Embezzlement" -- Am I Guilty?

Question Details: I co-own a corporation with my spouse through COMMUNITY PROPERTY law in California (On the book, my spouse is 100% owner.) I played an integral role in developing and growing/rescuing the business. My spouse is CEO and I was CFO. My spouse fired me and left me with no income. I decided to ask an employee to divert checks to me, and I cashed them in my personal bank account because I needed money and my spouse was becoming violent at home, uncooperative, did not give me money etc. The amount was +2 Million USD, but the company is still functioning well. Now I am threatened with embezzelement.
