Common Charges For Alleged White Collar Criminal Activity
White collar crimes are generally nonviolent crimes. They often involve fraudulent activity and/or financial transactions, as well as breaches in fiduciary duty. State and federal agencies aggressively investigate allegations of white collar crimes, including:
- Money laundering
- Mail fraud and wire fraud
- Insurance, tax or health care fraud
- Securities fraud
- Bank fraud
- ATM fraud
- Identity theft and credit card fraud
A criminal investigation may lead to federal charges when alleged criminal activity crosses state lines or appears to defraud the federal government. If you are facing a federal criminal charge, before you do anything else, contact Wolf Criminal Law. Not every criminal defense attorney has experience in federal court. Attorney Bill Wolf has extensive experience in developing and implementing effective defense strategies for people accused of federal crimes.

Penalties For White Collar Criminal Convictions In Illinois
Even though white collar crime is considered to be nonviolent, convictions for fraud, embezzlement and identity theft can still come with serious consequences, including fines and prison time. Criminal laws in Illinois sometimes require mandatory minimum sentences for serious felonies. Any white collar crime that involves a substantial amount of money could be considered a serious felony.
Additionally, federal judges in the U.S. criminal court system follow strict sentencing guidelines when assessing penalties for federal white collar crimes. Still, penalties for conviction can vary widely, depending on the amount of the alleged monetary losses and the number of people affected. If you are facing a white collar crime charge, we encourage you to contact Wolf Criminal Law as soon as possible. We develop sophisticated and effective strategies for getting charges reduced or dismissed.
