Fort Bend County White Collar Crime Attorney
You need an attorney to represent you!
The term "white collar crime" was coined in the early 20th century
as a crime that was committed by someone who was of high stature, usually
with the intent of financial gain. In today's society, white collar
crimes cover a large number of financially-driven crimes that are meant
to help the individual receive money or status to the detriment of the
victim. Although these are considered non-violent crimes, they still carry
heavy penalties, and you may be charged with a felony if you are arrested.
White collar crimes can include numerous types of offenses including bribery,
copyright infringement, cybercrimes and
internet crimes, money laundering and identity theft. These crimes can be easily committed
online, making them one of the most commonly charged crimes in Texas in
the 21st century. Some of the most common forms of white collar offenses include:
This crime involves the holding of money, assets or property from an individual
with the purpose of obtaining personal gain. Embezzlement of funds usually
involves corporations or people in high positions of power, but it can
also occur as embezzlement of funds from a spouse or family member and
in small business settings.
The intentional deception of one person to another is called fraud. To
make fraud a crime, the alleged perpetrator must have the intention of
acting in a fraudulent manner in order to gain something from the victim,
such as money, assets or property.
This form of white collar crime is usually referred to as an illegal,
crime-based business. Bribery or fear is often a major part of racketeering,
with the alleged racketeer playing into fears of the victim in order to
gain financial or personal profit.
