Do You Need a Fresno White Collar Crime Attorney?
Apr 12, 2017
White collar crimes are illicit activities that are committed by professionals, entrepreneurs, public officials, and business people. Unlike street crimes that involve force and violence, a white collar crime is typically violent free and involves the use of deception in order to obtain financial gains. Auditors, accountants, and whistle blowers are responsible for identifying and reporting white collar crimes.
The FBI has identified the following as white collar crimes:
- Credit card fraud
- Internet fraud
- Telemarketing fraud
- Commercial and consumer frauds
- Ponzi schemes and other financial swindles
- Insider trading
According to the FBI, white collar crimes cost the United States over $300 billion each year. Some of the penalties for white collar crimes include home detention, fines, restitution, paying prosecution costs, community confinement, supervised release, and imprisonment times that range from one to thirty years. Penalties for white collar crimes can be lessened if the defendant is willing to take responsibility for their crimes and helps the authorities throughout the investigation.
