White Collar CrimesThe criminal defense attorneys at Odom & Davis have an extensive history handling white collar criminal matters
White collar crime is a term that encompasses non-violent, profit motivated crimes that are committed by business and government professionals. White collar crimes include bribery, fraud, embezzlement, insider trading, Ponzi schemes, kick back schemes, money laundering, and copyright infringement, amongst others. These crimes differ from “street” crimes that include acts such as murder, rape, and robbery.
With the implementation of the sentencing guidelines in 1984, punishments for white collar crimes have become more severe. For many white collar crimes such as fraud, bribery, or money laundering, the sentencing guidelines looks at the aggregate loss involved in the allegation to calculate your sentence. If those losses are high, the guidelines could place a white collar criminal in the same spot as a murderer – with a life sentence. Given that there is no parole in the Federal system, the harshness of the sentencing guidelines for white collar crimes becomes more apparent.
