White collar crime: Anyone can be accused, indicted and convicted

As an experienced Cleveland, Ohio, law firm, our attorneys know that allegations of white collar crime can strike anyone at any time. It does not matter the defendant's career choice, social standing or community reputation, anyone could indicted for engaging in white collar crime if the circumstances are right. Even though these types of offenses usually do not include violent acts, the penalties can be severe and life changing if a conviction occurs.

Examples of common white collar crimes include the following:

-- Corporate fraud and embezzlement-- Wire and mail fraud-- Bankruptcy and mortgage fraud-- Securities fraud-- Defrauding lenders-- Tax evasion and tax fraud-- Money laundering and racketeering-- Insurance and health care fraud

Under the right conditions, even simple mistakes such as forgetting to file a tax return or trusting the wrong business partner can result in an indictment and possibly a conviction.

The federal government does not look kindly on those who engage in white collar criminal activities, even if it was done unknowingly or unintentionally. A conviction for these types of charges can result in massive fines and decades spent behind bars.

While white collar crime seldom makes the news unless it involves high profile companies and individuals, those who are indicted or convicted suffer in a myriad of ways. From public humiliation to financial devastation to time in prison, the list of consequences is quite extensive.

Those facing criminal charges for white collar crime can fight back by immediately seeking a strong defense. You can learn more about building such a defense by reviewing the comprehensive web pages published on the Goldberg Law Firm's website.
