White collar crimes can encompass several different acts, and among them are:
Of course, there are many others, but almost regardless of the particulars of the charges involved, a convicted defendant could face substantial fines and prison terms if he or she is convicted.
In addition to the severity of the charges, a suspect could face the prospect of being investigated by a team of experienced law enforcement professionals from agencies that include the SEC, IRS and FBI on the federal level and similar officials in Arizona. These investigators have dedicated their lives to investigating these sorts of crimes, which is why you need to act immediately if you are facing this sort of situation. If you are being investigated in a white collar crime contact one of our experienced white collar criminal defense attorneys in Phoenix for a free consultation.
The first steps you should take involve invoking two of your Constitutionally-guaranteed rights to remain silent and to secure the assistance of a white collar crimes attorney. You should invoke these rights respectfully, but you should not hesitate to do so, as many of these investigations center on huge piles of documented evidence that relate to the charges at hand.
Before you begin the process of attempting to defend yourself against these types of charges that can be extremely complicated and technical in nature, you need to be sure that youre putting your best defense together in order to give yourself the best chance to minimize your exposure to prison terms and fines.
