SM: One’s A Crook, One’s A Manager?

In our local paper there was an article about how a young woman had taken some money from the employers she worked for. She is alleged to have taken the money for personal reasons. So she has been charged with embezzlement. And she will go to jail for this, if proven. Which from the article it looks pretty much given, as she has confess to taking the money. In New York, and other larger cities, we have employee's of different titles of CEO's who have taken money from the company and the US government, used it for hundred of thousands, for remodel of bathroom (waste basket cost $1,500) and another redid his office, another gave bonuses to his fellow employees and etc. This is called "mismanagement of company funds" and there is no jail time for such things/Cis, From A Simple Mind. More here.

Question: Can someone explain to Simple Mind what's the difference between the embezzler and the well-rewarded CEOs who robbed from their companies and the government?
