White Collar Crimes Archives

Citizen oversight provides accountability, but might be gone

One of the primary focuses of a person who is facing time in prison for crimes like forgery, fraud or anything else is determining how he or she is going to survive prisons. Let's face it -- prisons in this country are horrible for the most part. Instead of focusing on rehabilitation, they simply lock people away with others who have been convicted of crimes and those who are facing charges.

What evidence is required to prove embezzlement?

Embezzlement is a legal term used to describe employee theft. In other words, it's the illegal act on the part of an employee who misappropriates money that was entrusted to his or her care by another person. Embezzlement is usually carried out by an employee, but it could also be committed by anyone entrusted with the care of money on behalf of another person.

Identity theft can occur in various ways

Identity theft is a white collar crime that has some very serious repercussions for the person accused of the crime and the alleged victim. If you have been accused of this crime, don't waste time in getting the defense process moving forward. Identity theft charges don't usually come until the prosecution has had time to put together a pretty strong case.

White collar crimes demand urgent attention

In our previous blog post, we discussed how keeping large amounts of cash can be construed as an illegal act. This is because of criminal activity, such as money laundering and drug sales. Some people who participate in these activities don't like to use banks because of the scrutiny that comes with making large deposits.

Large amounts of cash might lead to legal troubles

Some people don't trust banks. This distrust can lead to criminal charges if you opt to carry around large amounts of cash. This might be shocking to some people who think that as long as you got the money legally, there isn't any reason why you shouldn't be able to carry your own money around.

White collar crime defense must disprove the prosecution's claims

In our recent blog post, we discussed tax evasion and some of the points that must be present in a tax evasion case. If you recall, you aren't likely to face charges for tax evasion if you make a mistake on your tax return. Instead, you are likely to face this charge if you are making willful choices that are illegal for the sole purpose of not having to pay taxes.
