Quincy White Collar Crime Attorney
Nearly a Decade of Criminal Defense Experience
Have you been arrested for a white collar crime? Now is the time to act and retain the legal defense that you deserve to help ensure that you receive a positive outcome for your case. By definition, white collar crimes are crimes that are used for financial advancement by an individual. The monetary gain is often committed by those that are looking to wrong another person and can be considered crimes of moral turpitude.
The term white collar originated from the old business attire of wealthy individuals that would steal and embezzle from companies and the slang term has lasted throughout the decades. There is a wide array of white collar crimes that an individual can be charged with and if you or a loved one has been arrested and criminally accused, contact Flanagan & Associates. At my firm, I can work to aggressively defend your rights and work toward helping you receive a favorable verdict.
Preparing for Investigations
Unlike violent crimes where an obvious victim is often identified, an accusation for a white collar crime often can lead to numerous investigations. These can be very invasive and can spill into your personal life, relationships and work. In white collar crime cases, you may be investigated by not only local law enforcement agencies, but also major governmental agencies. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), International Revenue Service (IRS), United States Postal Service, Secret Service and Immigration and Customs Enforcement may all conduct thorough research. Due to the fact that these crimes are taken so seriously, it is important that you work with a criminal defense attorney who is not afraid to aggressively defend your rights and freedoms.
Penalties for White Collar Crimes
The penalties that an individual may be facing if they are found guilty of a white collar crime can be very harsh. If the crime was considered a federal offense, you may be forced to serve your sentence in a federal prison. Almost every white collar crime will require a portion of the penalties to include fines, restitution to the victim or victims and a probationary period.
Depending on the circumstances of the crime that you were arrested for, you may be charged with multiple accounts of criminal activity and face increased sentencing. Fraud,
conspiracy and various
theft crimes such as scams and credit card or identity theft all carry very harsh penalties. At my firm, I can work relentlessly to protect your rights and defend your freedoms in a white collar crime case.
