Before Hiring a White Collar Crime Attorney, What Should I Know About F.S. 775.0844?Florida law defines a general class of non-violent, economic offenses as “White
Collar” crimes. White collar crimes include fraud, forgery, bribery, and racketeering.
Also falling under the category of white collar crime are felonies committed with the intent to defraud or that involves a conspiracy to defraud.
When the State charges a person with an aggravated white-collar crime, it alleges that the person illegally obtained or attempted to obtain $50,000 or more from either (1) ten or more older adults, (2) twenty or more people in general, or (3) a state agency.
What defense would an experienced white collar crime attorney use?
Because the words “white collar crime” describe a class, or category, of crimes, the question of defense depends upon the particular nature of the offense charged.
For example, suppose the crime in question, like racketeering, requires the State to prove the defendant specifically intended to commit the crime.
In that case, the defendant may argue that a lawyer misinformed him when counseling him about the actions deemed criminal by the State.
Remember: the law requires the State to prove its case against you beyond all reasonable doubt. Thus, to win your case, it is not your attorney’s job to prove you are innocent.
Instead, by carefully studying the facts and the law, an experienced West Palm Beach white collar crime attorney will try to show that reasonable doubt, or better yet, several reasonable doubts, exist in the State’s prosecution.
What are the penalties for white collar crimes?
An aggravated white collar crime is a first-degree felony, subjecting the defendant to a range of penalties from a term of probation up to 30 years in prison.
In addition, a person convicted of an aggravated white-collar crime must pay restitution to each victim of the offense.
