What is a White-Collar Crime?

The term white-collar crime was initially defined " a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation." Today, this term is generally used to refer to non-violent crimes, usually committed for financial gain. White-collar crimes are typically considered to be committed by "white-collar workers" such as government employees, professionals, managers, business owners, mortgage brokers, bankers, accountants, doctors, and lawyers. White-collar crimes have evolved into being considered more serious offenses and can be prosecuted at both the state and federal level. These cases should be handled by a white-collar criminal defense attorney who has extensive experience in representing clients with complex white-collar charges.

The investigation of white-collar crimes is frequently long and complicated due to the legal issues involved. A white-collar offense typically involves an allegation regarding the deception and the misleading of others by some sort of fraud or corruption for financial gain. If you are found guilty of a financial crime, you could face fines, criminal forfeiture, and incarceration. The larger the amounts of money involved, the greater likelihood that a jail or prison sentence is an issue, as a result of sentencing guidelines that are utilized in both the federal and state systems.

Criminal forfeiture is a punishment imposed on an individual following a conviction. Criminal forfeiture requires that the government indict the property used in or obtained with proceeds from the crime. Upon completion of a criminal trial, if the defendant is found guilty, criminal forfeiture proceedings are conducted in the court before a judge. The proceedings may result in forfeiting property used in the offense or obtained with proceeds from the offense.

If you or someone you know is, or might be, charged with a white-collar offense, we strongly suggest that you seek the advice of a lawyer who has the background, experience, and knowledge to handle these types of offenses. White-collar offenses are typically among the most complex and complicated but are often quite defensible. Criminalizing conduct which should be handled in civil courts and not criminal courts happens frequently, and issues such as intent and knowledge are some of the critical factors to be evaluated when handling white-collar cases.
