White collar crimes aren’t violent like many street crimes. They typically involve financial crimes that might include embezzlement, securities fraud, Ponzi schemes money laundering or even crimes committed over the internet. These crimes are prosecuted aggressively, and they’re punishable by long prison terms and heavy fines.
When to Contact Us
Investigations into white collar crimes can be lengthy. People of interest or suspects often realize that they’re being investigated. If you believe that you are being investigated for a white-collar crime, or if you have been charged with one or more of them in or around Phoenix, don’t give any type of a statement or confession. Instead, contact our offices right away to retain the Scottsdale AZ crime lawyers at the Vingelli & Company Law Offices.
All Evidence Must Be Thoroughly Examined
When defending against a white-collar crime prosecution, how the government’s investigation took place is pivotal. Documents, accounting procedures and even flipped witnesses can be used against you. Even entrapment issues could arise. Aside from that evidence, intent is a requisite element in proving many white-collar crime cases. All evidence and testimony must be scrutinized by an experienced and effective white collar crime defense attorney.
The Burden of Proof
If you are aware of an investigation, and you retain us, we might be able to monitor it and intervene on your behalf. You might never be charged. If you are charged, the prosecution has the burden of proving you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. We hold them to that burden.
A statement or confession might be exactly what the prosecution needs from you in order to obtain a conviction on an otherwise weak case. If you suspect that you’re under investigation, or if you have been charged with a white-collar crime, exercise your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney.
