White Collar Crimes Archives

Don't put off getting started on your criminal defense

Facing a white collar crime means that you have some work to do. These cases are often filled with a paper trail that can be lengthy. When you are in this position, you need to get started on your defense quickly so that you might have the chance to sort through everything related to the case. This gives you a good idea of what you need to do for your defense.

Forensic accounting plays an important role in investigations

It is sometimes said that a person's desire to cover up a crime is going to be one of the key factors in getting caught. For some, the clues that they leave behind are unearthed by a forensic accountant. These professionals take the time to go through accounts a single transaction at a time in an effort to find things that point to misuse of money or illegal activities.

White collar crimes encompass many situations

White collar crimes are sometimes thought of as minor crimes by people; however, these crimes often result in felony charges that come with serious penalties. These crimes are ones that are motivated by financial gains and are often the result of fraud or deceit. There are many different charges that fall under this umbrella.

White collar crimes can lead to very serious legal action

White collar crimes are non-violent crimes that usually have to do with money. Some common examples include forgery, identity theft, money laundering, fraud and embezzlement. Often, these crimes are committed by people in executive positions, but one doesn't have to be an executive to face allegations of white collar crime.

Fraudulent misrepresentation may be an element in a criminal case

When you are entering into a contract with another person, you have to make sure that you are being fully honest about all aspects of the matters at hand. Failing to be truthful can lead to claims of you making fraudulent claims. People might not realize that they might end up facing criminal charges in relation to these claims.

Understand the specifics of your criminal charges

White collar crime charges have to be handled swiftly. As a defendant, you can't sit back and hope that the charges will go away because they won't. These cases often have a lot of evidence that can make a big impact on the outcome of the case. If you think that you are being investigated for white collar crimes, you should learn about your options. There are some cases in which the attempt to cover up the criminal activity makes things worse, so be very careful.

Fraud is based on untruthful statements

How often do you make statements without verifying that they are 100 percent correct? If you are like most people, you might do this often. But, did you realize that there are times when making a false statement can land you in legal hot water? Fraud charges are based on people who have made untruthful statements.

Work hard on your white collar criminal charge defense

Many white collar crime charges come after a long investigation. When you think about that, you can see how much work you might need to put into a defense. These charges aren't ones that you can just throw together a defense at the last minute. Instead, you need to be willing to take the initiative to get things moving in the direction you are ready to go.
