A brief look at federal crimes and white collar crime

Any type of criminal charge is sure to have serious, far-reaching consequences on assorted aspects of the defendant's life. Even white-collar crime on the federal or state level can result in major life changes, especially if a conviction occurs. As a result, swift action is wise for those facing federal crimes or white-collar crime in Pennsylvania.

Unfortunately, many business professionals are not as familiar with white-collar crimes as they should be. As such, they may unknowingly engage in unethical or illegal activities. Below, you will find several examples of common white-collar crimes, which could result in state and/or federal charges.

  • Securities fraud (e.g. insider trading)
  • Insurance and Medicaid fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Business scams (e.g. Ponzi schemes)
  • Money laundering
  • Forging of documents
  • Stealing another party's intellectual property (e.g. copyright infringement)
  • Tax evasion
  • Embezzlement, extortion and larceny

Upon conviction of federal crimes or white-collar crime, defendants could face an array of penalties such as imprisonment and significant fines. However, creating a successful criminal defense is not out of the question. With proper legal counsel from a dedicated professional, defendants have a fair chance of overcoming the charges they face.

If you are looking at criminal charges related to federal crimes and/or white-collar crime, it is vital to take immediate action by seeking a qualified evaluation of your case. During your attorney consultation, ask your lawyer to explain the charges you face in as much detail as possible. Your initial evaluation is also a good time to ask about possible defense strategies that could lead to a favorable outcome. Giving the matter prompt attention is one of the best ways to improve your odds of overcoming your predicament.
