Raleigh White Collar Crime Lawyer

White Collar crimes typically consist of frauds, misrepresentations, financial swindles, public corruption, bid-rigging, real estate mortgage fraud, investment scams and other schemes where the victim or victims suffer financial losses. Specific examples include:

  • Money laundering
  • Structured financial transactions
  • Obtaining property by false pretenses
  • False statement
  • Perjury
  • Filing false/fraudulent documents
  • Income tax evasion
  • Others

White Collar Crime Investigations

Investigations of these financial crimes or political corruption or other schemes are conducted by both federal, state and often joint federal/state task forces with experience and knowledge of similar schemes. The investigations involve subpoenas for records, grand jury subpoenas, inspection of financial records, review of tax records and interviews by federal and state investigators of practically every aspect of the person being investigated: financial holdings, assets, businesses, tax returns, bank records, telephone records, emails and other manner and means of communications.

White Collar Crime Consequences

In federal prosecutions, the amount of the fraud proven as well as the manner and means of accomplishing the fraud drive the potential sentencing factors. In State sentencing, particularly in North Carolina, the possible jail sentences can be dramatically increased by overall, or cumulative amount of the fraud. In North Carolina, if the cumulative amount of a fraudulent scheme exceeds $100,000, then the jail sentences available to the court increase tremendously.

Depending on the extent and effect of the scheme or fraud alleged, the following could result:

  • Incarceration
  • Asset seizure
  • Significant fines
  • Restitution assessments
