White collar crimes are criminal actions that are typically non-violent and are profit motivated. They are most commonly committed by professional business people or government officials. Examples include: bribery, embezzlement, fraud, insider trading, Ponzi schemes, kick-backs, money laundering, copyright infringement and the stealing of intellectual property. Just because these crimes aren’t violent doesn’t make them any less serious to the accused. Even white collar crimes can ruin your reputation and job prospects and result in jail time, fines, and penalties.
Federal sentencing guidelines and punishments for white collar crimes have become more severe over time. Today, sentencing guidelines require judges to take into account the aggregate loss involved in the crime when calculating sentences. Under those guidelines, extremely high losses could result in white collar criminals being sentenced to extensive prison terms. Life sentences are no longer unheard of in regard to these non-violent crimes.
Given the severity of white collar sentencing, it’s essential to seek the counsel of our experienced criminal attorneys in Madison, WI if you are accused or even suspected of having committed such a crime. White collar crimes are unique in several ways: they are atypical crimes; they are usually federal crimes; and they are punished based on the monetary losses suffered. Criminal defense attorneys must be skilled in federal judicial system laws and practices, the defense of non-violent crimes, and in routine business practices. Navigating this landscape while also collecting and examining evidence to support your innocence requires experience, dedication, and an attorney who will listen to your side of the story.
