White Collar Crime
White Collar Crime in Scottsdale
You May Find Yourself Facing both State and Federal Charges
Ever since money was invented, people have been trying to get more of it. While white collar crimes are generally in financial in nature, they can take many forms in Arizona. This is because money pervades almost every aspect of our personal lives as well as most business activities. There are many laws that regulate financial activities, and violating any of them has the potential to lead to a white collar charge. Defending against these charges is a complex endeavor.
One aspect of these types of charges that can be especially challenging is the fact that many white collar crimes are actually complicated and long-term schemes involving numerous people. In fact, it is possible for someone to become part of a white collar plot without their knowledge. Unfortunately, being unaware of your participation does not mean that you will be considered a victim by the prosecution. Instead, you may find yourself facing both state and federal charges for your role.
Conviction of a white collar crime can have a devastating impact on your professional reputation. Every industry relies on money to stay in business. Because of this, employers feel it is important to hire individuals that they can trust to not abuse their access to financial accounts or clients’ sensitive information. A conviction can cast permanent doubt on your honesty and reliability. Employers will be extremely reluctant to work with you as a result. Even if you can find a job, it is unlikely that you will ever be promoted to a position with high levels of responsibility.
