The broad definition of white-collar crime

White collar crime is a term that refers not to a specific crime, but more to a variety of crimes that are all unified by a specific theme: theft or unlawful possession of money that was obtained in a deceitful manner, usually from a corporation or entity. Some of the more commonly known types of white-collar crime are: fraud, embezzlement, money laundering and tax evasion.

What is particularly dangerous about white-collar crimes, as they pertain to the accused individual, is that oftentimes the victims of such crimes, those pursuing legal action, are large corporations or groups that care less about serving justice and more about recovering their lost expenses. This means that if the authorities find evidence to try you for fraud or embezzlement, the prosecution will likely pull out all stops in order to gain a conviction and ensure that you are liable for all of the stolen money.

Because there are so many different types of white-collar crimes, it is in your best interest to seek out the aid of an attorney if you are accused of any type of white-collar crime. Attorneys who are familiar with fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion and other such criminal charges can help you build a solid defense in order to ensure that you are not held responsible for a crime that you did not commit.

Louisiana law takes white-collar crime accusations very seriously, and it can be extremely difficult to defend yourself because of the cyber nature that often accompanies such crimes. One curious email sent to the wrong person could be enough to cause suspicion, so you must act quickly if you are a suspect. Do not take your legal defense lightly.
