White Collar Criminal Defense

What Constitutes White-Collar Crime?

Crimes labeled as "white collar" can encompass many types of illicit actions that are against the law. That said, what sets white collar crimes apart from other crimes is that they:

  1. are non-violent,
  2. involve some level of deceit or manipulation,
  3. occur on a business level,
  4. and are purposed to attain financial gain.

There are several types of white collar crimes. Among the most common include money laundering, scams, fraud, tax evasion, and embezzlement. Misleading schemes like Ponzi, insider trading, and security frauds are all considered to be white collar crimes. These types of crimes can be committed on both a state and federal level by either individual people or businesses and corporations.

“I certainly knew it was nefarious, a little wormy, unethical. Make no mistake about that. But, criminal? Fraud?” - Jay Jones, The New York Times Magazine

In 2004, 62-year-old Jay Jones started serving a five-year sentence for his white collar crimes involving corporate fraud. Shortly after he went to prison, he sat down with The New York Times Magazine to tell his story. While he apologized to the people impacted by his crime for the emotional and financial harm he had caused, he was shocked that what he had done was actually criminal.

This misconception is common, but the truth remains that if it's unethical it's probably criminal. White collar crimes have dire consequences that usually include not only jail time but heavy fines and forfeiting property. That's why I make every effort to keep my clients on the right side of the law by fighting fearlessly for their freedom. Your story doesn't have to end the same way Jay's did. If you're facing a white collar crime charge, call me today and schedule a consultation.
