People v. Sisuphan, No. A122351

Conviction of defendant for embezzlement for taking almost $30,000 from his employer's safe is affirmed where: 1) Penal Code section 512 does not provide a defense to embezzlement; and 2) trial court's evidentiary ruling was proper as even if the proffered evidence shows defendant took the money for another purpose, it does not prove he lacked fraudulent intent.
