Defending Your Rights
White-collar crimes, which tend to involve some form of fraud, are typically committed in a business or commercial environment for the purpose of monetary gain. These crimes are also often committed by people working in high-ranking positions within companies and corporations. There have been estimates that the cost of white-collar crimes is in the neighborhood of $300 billion each year in the United States. Some types of white-collar crimes include:
- Insider trading
- Computer fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
While white-collar crimes are not violent in nature, the penalties can be severe and include prison time – either in state or federal prison – if convicted. You may also be ordered to pay restitution and be sentenced to house arrest, probation and community service. Your professional future and reputation are at great risk and it is crucial that you contact a seasoned Houston criminal attorney without delay.
