What Is White Collar Crime?
Understanding the Consequences of White Collar Crimes in Fort Worth
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.
