Wisconsin statutes 943.20(1)(a) state:
Intentionally takes and carries away, uses, transfers, conceals, or retains possession of movable property of another without the other's consent and with intent to deprive the owner permanently of possession of such property.
In addition to proving the 4 elements of theft, the State must prove:
Occasionally, less-than-upright business owners and managers will report theft from business to the police so that the managers and owners can do one of many things, including: cover their own reputation and legitimacy if they have been losing money or stealing from the company themselves; write down business losses for tax purposes; and even collect on their insurance policies for the loss. In these situations, you must be prepared to engage in an extensive accounting of what you did and what your former employer thinks you did. We will need to examine and dissect your bank records to prove that you did not take money that was not yours.
