Ventura White Collar Crimes Lawyer
Are You Facing Charges for a White Collar Crime?
Many criminal offenses exist that are considered "white collar crimes,"
and they are traditionally of a financial or business-related nature.
This can leave many unlikely suspects up against a criminal conviction.
A large percentage of these offenses are federal crimes that are tried
in federal courts, and they can carry penalties that include substantial
fines, probation, restitution to the victims, criminal property forfeiture,
and extended jail or prison sentences.
Common White Collar Crimes
Examples of white collar crimes include:
- Tax evasion
- Money laundering
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Real estate fraud
A person who has been charged with a white collar crime that violates federal
and state law can be tried in both federal and state courts without invoking
the double jeopardy law, and may be subject to penalties at both levels.
