Hanford White Collar Crime Attorney
California Felony Defense
White collar crimes come with a vast amount of detail and evidence to wade through, as well as complex local, federal, and international laws. California law classifies white collar crimes as a felony. These specific crimes are characterized by deceit, concealment, and abuse of trust. They are financially motivated, but tend to be nonviolent in nature.
White collar crimes include, but are not limited to:
- Public corruption
- Money laundering
- Environmental Crime
- Pension Fund Crimes
- Tax fraud
What penalties could I be facing for a white collar crime?
The punishments for a white collar crime can include up to 5 years in a state prison, up to $150,000 in fines and restitution, as well as home detention, community confinement, and forfeitures. Prior convictions for fraud or other felonies can drive up the penalties, but cooperation with the prosecution may reduce penalties.
Aggravated white collar crime can be charged when the prosecution can prove that offenders have committed a pattern of felony-related conduct. This can apply to a defendant who has committed two or more white collar crimes. Patterns of felonies that cause a loss between $100,000 and $500,000 will often receive an additional 1-2 years in prison. If these patterns cause a loss greater than $500,000, the offender can expect to receive an additional 3-5 years in prison.
