White collar crimes refer to non-violent theft offenses such as fraud, embezzlement and tax evasion. White collar offenses can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony depending on the extent of the crime. Some cases are also federal crimes that involve the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, U.S. Customs, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and other federal agencies. Federal government investigations into white collar offenses can take many months before there is an indictment. If you have been charged with a white collar crime, contact an Akron criminal defense attorney for immediate legal advice and representation. A qualified lawyer should also be consulted if you are under investigation for committing a white collar offense to help prevent an indictment.
