Sugar Land White Collar Crime Attorney
What are White Collar Offenses?
White collar crime refers to a wide range of criminal offenses, but they
all have a few things in common. Most white collar crimes do not involve
the use of physical violence, and a majority of them are based on theft
or misappropriation of money through the use of deception.
Many cases of white collar offenses are prosecuted as federal crimes, which
leads to the harshest criminal proceedings an individual can face. If
you have been charged with any type of white collar crime in Texas, you
need the representation of a seasoned
Sugar Land defense lawyer who has experience with this type of case, to protect your rights and
avoid the penalties of a conviction.
Types of Offenses
White collar crime has received increased attention in recent years with
the rise in internet based commerce, due to the fact that many offenses
of this nature are
internet crimes. Identity theft, mail fraud, wire fraud, tax evasion and credit card fraud
are all common examples. If you are convicted for a white collar crime,
you may be sent to federal prison, depending on the severity of the charge.
In certain cases, the sentence may include a term in a federal penitentiary.
You can also expect to be forced to pay steep fines and be ordered to
serve probation. You must take legal action to defend yourself, even if
the primary defendant in the case is your employer and you want to protect
yourself from involvement.
