What Is White Collar Crime?
Understanding the Consequences
White collar crime is difficult to define, but two consistent characteristics
are nonviolence and, in many cases, illegal financial gain. These are
crimes like bank
fraud, embezzlement, bribery and tax crimes that are usually committed by professionals
or within a corporate or political setting or environment in which victims
are not physically harmed. But don't be fooled by the innocent sounding
name. White Collar crime is very serious in the eyes of the law, and convictions
can mean significant prison time and/or steep fines -- not to mention
the inability, in many cases, for those convicted to work again in their
chosen professions. Residents of Fort Worth charged with any of these
or other white collar crimes should seek legal assistance right away.
Legal Assistance When You Need it Most
White collar crimes often involve complex elements that can be difficult
to detect, investigate, prosecute and defend. In many cases, charges are
only filed against suspects after extensive ongoing investigations by
government agencies and other law enforcements groups. These kinds of
criminal investigations, however, may often include surveillance and other
technologies or techniques that can sometimes violate the Constitutional
rights of those being investigated. In these instances, it's possible
to exclude evidence against a suspect or even have the entire case dismissed.
