What Are White Collar Crimes?
A white collar crime is any non-violent offense that is committed or planned for financial gain. It encompasses a wide range of offenses, including:
- Fraud: purposeful perversion of truth that resulted in another person parting with something valuable to them
- Evading taxes: illegally avoiding paying your taxes by misrepresenting your income, hiding money, or other means
- Embezzlement: fraudulently taking the property of another person who lawfully owns that property
- Bribery: paying or giving something valuable to someone in exchange for an official action
- Money laundering: obtaining money or other assets through criminal activity
- Antitrust violations: engaging in abusive practices like monopolies, price fixing, and restraints
These crimes are prosecuted by the federal government and can involve serious penalties. Without a strong defense, you could be left with a record that can affect your whole life.
White Collar Crime Penalties
White collar crimes may be presumed to have more lenient penalties because they do not inflict physical harm on those they target, however this is not the reality of the situation. White collar crimes in California can lead to:
- Up to five years in prison
- Up to $150,000 in fines
- Additional restitution costs
These penalties grow in severity if the accused has previous fraud charges on their record. If you have been accused of a white collar crime, contact our defense attorneys for immediate representation.
