Olathe White Collar Crime Lawyer

What is White Collar Crime?

White collar crime is typically described as criminal offenses that are business-related and of a financial nature. Such crimes violate federal law and more often than not are tried in a federal court. Crimes that would be considered white collar include bribery, bankruptcy fraud, bank fraud, embezzlement, counterfeiting, tax evasion, money laundering, and insurance fraud, among others. The penalties involved in conviction of a white collar crime can include restitution to the victims of the crime, forfeiture, home supervision, and jail time.

Depending on whether state or federal laws were violated when the crime was committed, white collar offenses can be tried at either the state or federal level, and the penalties can vary accordingly. If the crime is tried at the federal level, the proceedings can often be complex, and the federal prosecutors involved can often take their time investigating the case, sometimes taking over a year to gather evidence and testimony. If you have been charged with a white collar crime, you could be facing serious consequences, and you should contact an Olathe criminal defense lawyer immediately to give you the best chance of a fair and just trial.
