Tallahassee White Collar Crime Lawyer
Fraud and Financially-Motivated Offenses
Non-violent acts involving deception, typically known as white collar crimes, are commonly committed by a public official or person of business. It's the profile of these regular offenders that helped coin the term "white-collar", as opposed to blue-collar. Signs of a white collar crime normally involve a trail of evidence known as a "paper trail" that investigators use for prosecution of the case. These include bank statements and other forms of documentation.
There are many different types of white collar crimes we can assist you with, including:
- Bribery - occurs when someone gives or takes a bribe.
- Embezzlement - the taking of someone's property by a person with whom it is entrusted.
- Extortion - also known as blackmail.
- Fraud - involved with intentional deception, usually financially motivated
- Larceny - involves taking someone's property without paying for or returning it.
- Price Fixing - a violation of free market policies wherein two parties agree to set a price for a certain product or service for the purposes of mutual gain.
- Racketeering - the extortion of money by force or a pattern of criminal activity committed to further interests of a criminal syndicate.
Theft, Regulatory Offenses, and Public Administration Crimes
White collar crimes can be further broken down into three typologies: theft crimes, crimes against public administration, and regulatory offenses. White collar crime is considered a form of theft when it involves things like embezzlement, which is stealing a business' money for one's own purposes.
White collar crime can be a regulatory offense, say, when a broker violations a securities law that results in investors losing money, such as unfair trade practices. White collar crime can also be a crime against public administration when they fall under the umbrella of perjury or offering bribes.
