What elements must exist for an embezzlement charge to hold?

The thievery of "assets" by a person who has been granted access to said assets along with the capacity to operate or manage them is classed as embezzlement. It most commonly takes place in a corporate environment. Embezzlement is not in any way limited to the theft of physical assets; it can also come in the form of alteration of files and databases to cover up any theft of finances, this is classed as accounting embezzlement. If a person is given access and authority to operate the assets of a client or company strictly for the use of the former's best interest but instead misuses said assets for personal gain and interest, then this shall also be classed as embezzlement.
