Fraud is often considered to be when an individual intentionally misrepresents a material fact, and with this knowledge of falsity, induces another to act, causing that person to suffer injury or damages. These acts of deceit or trickery can be very damaging to those that fall victim to these crimes; however, those accused of committing such a crime can suffer damages to their personal and professional life, as many of these criminal allegations stem from a person’s role or position in the workplace.
White collar crimes have the tendency, like most crimes, to carry serious consequences. And depending on where the supposed crime occurred and what career a person holds, an allegation of fraud can be very detrimental even if the accused is not convicted. Thus, it is vital that defendants in Baton Rouge and elsewhere understand their rights and criminal defense strategies available to them.
