White Collar Crimes

White Collar Criminal Charges

With Florida’s reputation as a “haven” for white collar crime, Federal and State prosecutors have aggressively pursued these criminal charges in recent years. Real estate fraud, mail and wire fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, racketeering and conspiracy are just a few of the common examples. The penalties for white collar crime are severe (including lengthy prison sentences and large fines), and prosecutors have extensive resources to seek convictions.

If you have been charged with a white collar crime or are the target of an investigation, it is vital that you seek legal counsel from an experienced criminal trial attorney immediately. Your freedom and perseveration of rights hang in the balance.

Anyone Can be Charged with White Collar Crime

The term “white collar crime” refers to crimes that are typically committed for financial gain and without violence. Originally meant to describe the type of crimes perpetrated in traditional “white collar” professions, federal and state prosecutors now vigorously pursue these types of criminal charges against people from all walks of lives. Gone are the days when you needed a corner office or suit and tie to be facing charges of white collar crime. The implosion of the real estate market in the panhandle of Florida is of particular local concern. Many people who never dreamed of being defendants are now facing charges of white collar crime.

White Collar Crime Cases are Complex and Lengthy Affairs

White collar crimes usually involve complicated financial and legal transactions. Prosecutors may take months or even years to building a case before finally filing charges. Once a case begins, the defendant can be facing a dizzying list of alleged crimes and hundreds or thousands of documents to back the prosecutor’s case. An experienced white collar crime attorney can put your mind at ease when facing such an overwhelming situation and stand by your side throughout the long haul.
