White Collar Crimes

When people hear “white collar crime” they may assume that the penalties for these crimes aren’t severe. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even though white collar crimes are non-violent and financial in nature, being charged with one of these crimes can have you facing many different types of penalties from probation, county jail, state or federal prison. Additionally, they can carry STRIKES, which means depending on how many counts are filed against you, more jail time. If it is a repeat offense, a longer term of jail, or even worse, if it is a 3rd STRIKE life in prison.

There are many different crimes that are considered white collar crimes. Here are a few:

  • Bribery (trying to pay someone off)
  • Computer Hacking (breaking into someone’s computer)
  • Counterfeiting (making copies of money or bonds)
  • Cyber Crime (usually stealing money through a computer)
  • Email Interception (getting into another person’s private information)
  • Embezzlement (a trusted person who takes money or property for personal use)
  • Extortion (forcing someone to pay you or do something for you by threatening them)
  • Forgery (signing someone else’s name)
  • Fraud (illegally getting property or money through misrepresentation or lies)
  • Identity Theft (basically, using someone else’s credit cards)
  • Money Laundering (trying to avoid taxes by hiding money)
  • Pandering (basically, begging for money)

Specializing In Bench Warrants

When you have been charged with a crime, you are compelled to sit before a judge and have the outcome of that crime and any applicable penalties decided. For those who choose to miss their appointed court dates, the judge has the ability to issue a bench warrant in an effort to bring you to justice, in which case, you will need a criminal defense attorney on your side to navigate the legal system.

A bench warrant is an authorization by the court system for law enforcement officers to locate and arrest you in an effort to bring you to court to answer for your charges. This means that the officer has the authority to come to your home or place or work in order to place you under arrest. Or, if you are stopped by a police officer for a traffic violation, you will be arrested and brought to jail to be held until your court date.

Ignoring the existence of a bench warrant can jeopardize your ability to bail out of jail, if you are arrested or detained. You can even lose your ability to drive legally as your driver’s license can be suspended. However, bench warrants are usually easily resolved. Your criminal defense lawyer can help you resolve any open bench warrants and get you back on the right side of the law.
