Who may face white collar criminal charges?
Many professionals including lawyers, accountants, doctors, nurses, stockbrokers, corporate directors and executives face white collar criminal charges. Often companies have employees who engage in fraudulent acts requiring the company to retain independent counsel. Other times, companies are investigated directly by law enforcement regarding allegations of fraud, embezzlement or tax evasion. If you, your company or organization is under investigation or face charges, you should consult with our federal criminal defense attorneys.
The most common types of white collar crime
Both individuals and corporations can face white collar charges. Some of the most common forms of white collar crime include:
- Fraud: This is a general term for the circumstance when one person or organization deceives another for financial gain. There are many types, including tax, mail, wire, financial institution, governmental, healthcare, insurance and securities fraud.
- Tax evasion: With this form of white collar crime, violators attempt to avoid paying taxes they rightly owe. This may include providing false information on tax returns, not filing tax returns, or and/or illegally transferring personal holdings to conceal their existence from the Internal Revenue Service.
- Gambling offenses: These offenses include any violation of the New York State Penal Law or federal laws that prevent gambling operations that are not previously approved and permitted by New York State or the federal government. Gambling offenses are commonly charges together with organized crime offenses, including conspiracy.
- Larceny: Larceny is an encompassing definition that describes the illegal taking of another person’s property. This may include fraud, embezzlement, filing false documents, or a number of other white collar crimes.
- Embezzlement: This is when individuals or organizations unlawfully take money from people to whom they owe a duty. For example, an employee may steal funds from an employer or an investment advisor may use a client’s money to pay his or another client’s debts or expenses.
- Racketeering: Racketeering involves an organized criminal offense, such as bribery, embezzlement or counterfeiting. Business executives and organized crime syndicates are often the targets of racketeering charges.
- Money laundering: This crime involves concealment of illegal monetary gain. Investigators tend to have a difficult time tracking down the paper trail of these types of financial transactions.
