Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good afternoon. If your partner is in Beaumont CA and spending the money in Beaumont CA, jurisdiction would be in Beaumont CA. You can contact the Beaumont Police Department and/or the Riverside County Sheriff's Office and ask them to take your complaint. What you are describing could constitute "embezzlement" under California Penal Code sec. 503, so it is a potential criminal matter. If local law enforcement decides that it's "a civil matter", that's basically code for "we doubt we can prove guilt and we don't want to get involved."--if that hypothetically happens, your remedy would then be in the civil courts.Let me know if further clarification is needed, and please feel free to leave a rating once you are finished (it does not cost anything extra to do so, and it is the only way I may be credited for my answers.) Thank you!
Thanks, ***** *****!
