White Collar Federal Crimes

White collar crime is typically a financial or corporate crime that is often carried out through deceptive means. Although white collar criminal charges are usually brought against individuals, corporations may also be subject to criminal penalties.

If you are under investigation for a white collar crime, or have already been arrested for a white collar crime than you have to act quickly and are in need of an aggressive criminal attorney. Contact Michael Becker’s office immediately so we can discuss your case and begin to protect your rights against further prosecution. The penalties for being convicted of a white collar crime can be severe. They may include prison, heavy fines, forfeiture, restitution, probation, home electronic monitoring, and community confinement and supervised release.

Typical white collar crimes may include internet fraud, computer hacking, welfare fraud, health care fraud, insider trading, insurance fraud, investment schemes, kickback, blackmail, bribery, larceny or theft, cellular phone fraud, forgery, embezzlement, perjury, money laundering, wire fraud, mail fraud, securities fraud, racketeering, tax evasion, telemarketing fraud, credit card fraud, currency schemes, firearm, explosives, arson, bombings, domestic & international terrorism, drug trafficking, identity theft, counterfeiting, extortion, child pornography, child exploitation and obscenity.

State Court & Felony Crimes:

On the State level, felonies are considered the most serious types of crimes. The standard definition for a felony is a crime punishable by more than one year in a state prison or by death for capital offenses. People who are convicted of felonies and sentenced to more than one year will serve their sentences in a state prison rather than the local, city or county jail.

 Typical felonies may include murder homicide, manslaughter, drug possession, and possession with intent to sell, drug or narcotics trafficking, manufacturer of methamphetamine, manufacture of gamma- hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), grow houses, guns, firearms, explosives, domestic battery, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, sex crimes, crimes against children, accusation of child molestation, identity theft, theft, retail theft, grand theft, burglary, and repeated DUI offenders.

Misdemeanor Crimes:

Misdemeanor crimes are less serious than felony crimes. The standard definition of a misdemeanor is a crime that may result in a jail sentence that does not exceed a year, 364 days or less. If a jail sentence is imposed, it is served in a local, city or county jail rather than a state or federal penitentiary.

Although a misdemeanor is not as serious as a felony, a misdemeanor should still be considered serious and must be taken care of. Contact Michael Becker’s office immediately so we can discuss your case and develop a further course of action.

Typical misdemeanors may include DUI, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, trespass, assault, battery, retail theft, shoplifting and domestic battery or domestic violence crimes.

He did this all with a disarming yet professional manner which put me and my family at ease during a very stressful time.”
