White Collar Crime
White Collar Crime typically refers to a charge where someone in a position of trust (such as a corporate officer or government employee) is alleged to have violated that trust, usually by committing fraud or theft. White Collar Crimes tend to encompass complex legal issues and theories. In the wake of the Enron scandal, these cases are taken more seriously by the government and the consequences can be severe. These cases are different from others because the person who is alleged to have committed this type of offense is usually investigated and contacted by the government before they are ever arrested. In this initial contact, the government typically requests information from the person or seeks a confession and then uses that information to build their case. The best way to handle these types of cases is to hire an attorney immediately, before you speak to the government.
