What is criminal conversion?
One of our employees got a court summons for criminal conversion. What does this term mean or I guess what could the charge be?
The crime of criminal conversion is committed when 1 person unlawfully exerts unauthorized use or control over another's property. It differs from theft in that it does not include the element of intending to depriving (or intending to deprive) the owner of the possession of their property. Examples would be, would be the taking of services such as tapping someone's secured wireless LAN or public utility line.
