As a result, prosecutors often tend to come down harshly upon those who have been caught, in order to make an example of violators and prevent future crimes.

An important aspect of prosecution against a white collar crime is proving that the defendant willfully and knowingly planned to defraud a business or individual for financial gain. If fraudulent intent cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, the prosecution will fall short of a conviction. We can strategize to show that your behavior was legitimate by closely examining the real evidence and investigating any other members who might have been seeking to benefit from you taking the blame.
In the recent wake of many scandals involving large corporations and corrupt investment companies, there has been a greater focus on cases known as “white collar” crimes. Federal agencies have become especially dedicated in pursuing and exposing misconduct by utilizing advanced technology. The media often portrays those accused as convicted swindlers before any trial has been convicted.
Some of those targeted by investigators and charged may have been scapegoats for the true corruption occurring at higher level ranks.
