Helping professionals with while collar crime allegations

Fraud is considered a deceitful act. It is also an act that could cause a person to face white collar crime charges. Whether an individual is a respected professional or a regular employee, anyone can be accused of fraud in the workplace. These charges, however, are serious, as they not only carry with them serious penalties but could also harm a person's reputation and career.

Restitution and criminal consequences

When charged with a crime, those accused often think about the penalties he or she might have to endure if a conviction results. This typically comes in the form of jail time and fines. For some crimes, such as white collar crimes, the victims harmed by the supposed crime could be owed restitution. Thus, offenders convicted of a crime may have to pay a certain amount of money in order to make a victim whole again.

What are the penalties for cocaine?

Being accused of a drug crime could mean serious penalties. With regards to drug sales or drug trafficking allegations, this does not only mean facing charges based on the states laws but could also mean facing federal charges as well. Because the penalties associated with a drug charge could be tremendous, it is vital to take the time to explore criminal defense options.

What does it mean to be booked?

If you've ever seen the old TV show "Dragnet," you may recall a detective inevitably saying, "Book 'em, Danno" at some point during every episode. The phrase refers to processing a suspect into the criminal justice system when a police officer has made an arrest. In other words, if a law enforcement agent is booking you, he or she suspects you of a crime, and you are going to spend at least the next half hour, several hours or longer behind bars.

Our past can be very relevant in our present and future. Whether it happened a decade ago or a year ago, a criminal record can haunt a person, especially when an individual is accused of a crime. A criminal allegation alone could mean serious penalties; however, a criminal history could make the consequences harsher. Thus, no matter if this is your first criminal charge or not, it is important for defendants to explore their criminal defense options.

The penalties associated with embezzlement

As previously discussed, it is not uncommon for individuals to face criminal allegations that stem from their work duties. For those entrusted or tasked to handle money or the finances in the workplace, one might be accused of any issues or mishaps that occur with the revenue of a business. However, embezzlement allegations are serious, and while this crime can be based on various actions, the truth of the matter is that the penalties can be very harsh and life impacting. Thus, it is important to understand these changes, what criminal consequences could occur and how best to move forward with a criminal defense.
