Gardnerville White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer
Serving Nevadans with Decades of Criminal Law Experience
White collar crimes are generally financially-motivated, nonviolent, and committed by individuals in a position of trust. They often take place in business settings and carried out by employees or professionals involved in the operation. These are often complex crimes of deception aimed at gaining a financial advantage over others. Various types of fraud committed for monetary gain are typical crimes commonly referred to as white collar. They may be committed by individuals acting alone or by organized groups.
Despite the fact that these crimes are not violent, they are still vigorously investigated and prosecuted due to the financial damage they cause to the public. Investigations by law enforcement agencies into white collar crimes can be lengthy and exhaustive. If you or someone you know is under such an investigation or has been charged with white collar crimes, we strongly advise you to consult with our Gardnerville white collar crimes defense attorney. Ron Cauley has decades of criminal defense experience and proven results to use on your behalf, both inside and outside the courtroom.
Types of White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes can be committed in a variety of ways. These crimes can include:
- Identity theft
- Money laundering
- Bank and wire fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Healthcare fraud, including Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Securities fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Investment fraud, such as Ponzi schemes
- Mail fraud
Many of these types of crimes are considered serious felonies, which can result in lengthy prison sentences, hefty fines, and court-ordered restitution to victims. How they are charged will depend on the type of crime committed, the amount of financial damage it created, the number of victims involved, prior criminal history, and other relevant factors in the case. White collar crimes have their specific definition under the law, the elements of which must be proved by the prosecution beyond a reasonable doubt.
