While it’s true that a violent crime may be a more heinous type of crime committed against another person, white collar crimes are often penalized just as harshly, or even more so. To be sure, a conviction for a white collar crime can result in a lengthy prison sentence and large fine. At Kersey Law, our San Diego white collar crime lawyers understand this reality, and provide our clients facing white collar criminal charges with the strongest defense possible.
Understanding White Collar Crimes in San Diego
White-collar crimes refer to those crimes that are non-violent in nature, and therefore encompass a variety of crime types. Some of the most common and serious types of white collar crimes include:
- Corporate fraud;
- Mortgage fraud;
- Healthcare fraud;
- Money laundering;
- Securities fraud;
- Investment fraud;
- Embezzlement; and
- Tax evasion.
The Penalties for White Collar Crimes
Each crime is classified differently, and often times, the classification of the crime (i.e. felony vs. misdemeanor and degree of either) is dependent upon the amount of money involved. That being said, a white collar criminal charge can result in misdemeanor or felony penalties.
Defenses to White Collar Criminal Charges
White collar crimes are often committed over multiple years of time and in a very crafty manner, and therefore understanding precisely what evidence the prosecution has against you is the first step in building your defense; it can be difficult for the prosecution to obtain the evidence it needs to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Once you understand the evidence against you, you can start building your defense, which might include claims of lack of intent, or even legal transfer of monies (or other acts).
Of course, striking a plea deal with the prosecution may also be an option. Our attorneys can help you to understand the options available to you and advise you regarding your course of action.
