Types of White Collar Crimes

At its most basic, white collar crime is the broad term given to a wide range of crimes that involve deceit or misrepresentation to gain money or other assets. The FBI defines white collar crime as a “ … full range of frauds committed by business and government professionals [that are] characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and are not dependent on the application or threat of physical force or violence.”

White collar crimes may encompass any of the following acts:

  • Tax Evasion
  • Racketeering
  • Money Laundering
  • Extortion
  • Forgery
  • Theft
  • Ponzi Schemes
  • Embezzlement
  • Mail, Wire, or Bank Fraud
  • Identity Fraud
  • Healthcare Fraud
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Mortgage and Lending Fraud

Penalties for White Collar Crimes in Arizona

Similar to other criminal offenses, the penalties for white collar crimes in Arizona are based on the specific offense committed and its severity, including the amount of money and number of alleged victims involved in the crime. While misdemeanor convictions are punishable by up to six months in jail, felony crimes could result in years in prison and fines worth tens of thousands of dollars or more.

Even though these crimes aren’t violent, they can cause a lifetime of damage for the victim, meaning the prosecution can impose the maximum sentence. To best overcome your accusations, our Flagstaff white collar crime lawyer can employ a strategic defense incorporating the following elements, depending on your case:

  • Lack of intent
  • Entrapment
  • Duress
  • Incapacity
  • Insanity
  • Plea deals

Our comprehensive understanding of the legal process enables us to build a defense tailor-made for your unique circumstances.
