|White Collar Crime Facts|
|Being charged with a white collar crime means one is often perceived as clever, greedy and deeply dishonest. This is because the accused allegedly betrayed the trust of someone close, such as an employer, an employee, a purported friend or a customer. Most of the public is familiar with the Enron scandal and many cannot forget the deception committed by Michael Milken over ten years ago. The accused is considered dishonest and / or cheaters in one way or another, usually in a paradoxical way because the accused is quite often a professional and from the middle to upper class.|
Moreover, white collar crimes – which can be generally described as theft – are nonviolent, but can involve great damages.
These crimes include passing bad checks, embezzlement, check kiting, pyramid and ponzi schemes, forgery, insider trading, real estate fraud, bank fraud, workers compensation fraud, accounting fraud, tax fraud, internet fraud, or other forms of deception that can be quite complicated. It is therefore essential that the accused hire a law firm that is experienced in defending against such charges and capable of devoting large amounts of time to your defense.
Penalties can include substantial fines, prison or jail time, and other penalties.
