Fighting Against White-Collar Crime Charges in California

White-collar crimes are generally nonviolent activities aimed at obtaining financial or personal gain at the expense of others. The label of white-collar crimes covers a wide variety of offenses that may be committed by a single person or a well-organized group. While the schemes behind them may vary widely, all are based on deception using misleading, false, or stolen information. The deception is conducted deliberately. 

Being accused of a white-collar crime can be devastating to your career, your personal reputation, your family, and your future. Because these crimes are based on deception, you will be viewed as dishonest, making future employment difficult.

Types of White-Collar Crimes

How you are charged in any white-collar crime will be dictated by the nature of the offense, how much financial damage you caused others, and your prior criminal history, if any. Crimes may be charged as misdemeanors or even felonies based on the facts and circumstances of the case.

Examples of these crimes include:

  • Identity theft
  • Credit card fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Healthcare fraud, such as Medicare and Medicaid fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Workers’ compensation fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Forgery
  • Mail fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Investment scams, such as Ponzi schemes
  • Securities fraud
  • Welfare fraud

What are the Penalties For Felony White-Collar Crimes?

In felony cases, a conviction may result in lengthy prison sentences and hefty fines along with restitution to victims. Forfeiture laws may be applied to take away your home and property, and a conviction can have a substantially negative effect on obtaining future professional licenses. Furthermore, California has a white-collar enhancement law for repeat offenders that can lead to extra terms of punishment and fines.
