White collar crime is a broad category that refers to non-violent crimes committed in business settings by individuals, groups, or corporations for the purpose of financial gain. Those crimes usually involve money, computers and the Internet, or some combination of all three. White collar crimes can be prosecuted at the state or federal level, depending on whether a state or federal law was broken.
In addition to criminal penalties, white collar charges may jeopardize your job, career and reputation. If you suspect that you are under investigation or if you have been questioned about your business practices, it is extremely important that you exercise your Constitutional right to remain silent until you are represented by an attorney. Any comment you make in an effort to explain your situation can later be used against you. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of securing legal assistance as soon as possible before an investigation turns into a criminal charge.
