Rhode Island and Massachusetts White Collar Crimes Lawyer
In recent years, federal and state regulatory and law enforcement agencies have significantly increased investigations and prosecutions of white collar crime. But what is white collar crime?
White collar crimes are generally non-violent and tend to take place in a professional setting. It’s usually ordinary people, rather than career criminals, that are accused of white collar crimes. They are often desperate for a solution for financial woes or other problems. These crimes cost taxpayers and corporations billions of dollars per year, and law enforcement in Rhode Island is cracking down.
A few examples of white collar crimes are:
- Money Laundering
- Mail and Wire Fraud
- Internet and Computer Crimes-including Identity Theft
- Bank Fraud
- Insurance Fraud
- Health Care Fraud
- Securities Fraud
- Tax Evasion
If you’ve been accused of a white collar crime, do not take it lightly. Charges for these kinds of crimes can be just as devastating as any other type of criminal charges. Those accused or convicted have the same rights and privileges as other criminal defendants. However, the investigation of a white collar crime can drag on through months. This can put everyone, the accused, witnesses, and anyone else at risk. The sooner you contact a white collar crime lawyer, the better.
