White collar crimes are those crimes which are generally considered to be nonviolent in nature, yet they involve financially-motivated criminal activities committed for the purpose of monetary gain.
Cheating customers, insider trading, mortgage fraud, embezzlement, bribery, money laundering, identity theft, tax evasion, credit card fraud and other such crimes are classified as white collar crimes. Whether charges will be prosecuted at the state or federal level will depend on a variety of factors including how many people were involved, the amount of money or property taken, how the crime was committed and whether federally regulated groups, such as banks, were involved.
While anyone may be capable of committing white collar crimes, the majority of white collar criminal cases tend to involve business professionals, politicians, accountants, managers and other such executives. Since the penalties for white collar crimes can lead to expensive fines, probation, restitution of monies lost and lengthy prison sentences, not to mention the fact that a conviction for a white collar crime will give you a permanent felony criminal record, it is strongly advised that you contact the Law Office of Brian Andritch immediately.
