What is the penalty for stealing money from a trust fund as the agent/trustee, who has no intention of ever paying the money back, other than a lawsuit? Usually a person who takes what is not theirs is doing it because they don't have anything to begin with, so what would be the purpose of suing? This seems an all-to-common practice so many people get away with, without any consequences. Is there any other recourse?
