The investigation of white collar crimes is frequently long and complicated due to the legal issues involved. A white collar offense typically involves an allegation regarding the deception and the misleading of others by some sort of fraud or corruption for financial gain. If you are found guilty of a financial crime, you could face fines, criminal forfeiture and incarceration. The larger amounts of money involved, the greater likelihood that a jail or prison sentence is an issue, as a result of sentencing guidelines that are utilized in both the Federal and State systems. The government can also assert forfeiture laws in order to seize your home, property, bank accounts, and personal assets, even if you have not yet been convicted for any of these crimes. These charges also can adversely affect your professional licenses and accreditation.
