How are white-collar crimes defined?

While crimes are committed for a wide variety of reasons, many are motivated for financial gains. Individuals in Virginia and elsewhere might face accusations for a serious financial crime, causing them to be charged with a white-collar crime. But this type of crime is different from violent crimes, and it is important that defendants understand what they are being accused of and what potential penalties he or she could face.

Helping you defend against a white collar crime allegation

Being accused of a crime can be a very emotional and mentally challenging situation. It can be difficult to process what is going on, and defendants often fear the unknown. In some matters, mere allegations can be enough to compromise the accused's personal and reputation. This is especially true if a person is facing a while collar crime that stemmed from his or her place of employment.

Being accused of a crime, no matter the severity, can substantially impact the accused person's life. Allegations alone have the tendency to negatively impact the personal and professional reputation of the accused. Therefore, it is imperative that accused offenders of drug crimes take the time to understand the charges against them and what actions they can take to reduce the consequences of the charges.

What are the different types of drug crimes?

Virginia residents are likely aware that both state and federal laws cover crimes related to drugs. While state laws are narrower, so long as they do not conflict with current federal laws, federal drug laws have the tendency to result in more severe penalties. No matter the type of drug charge you are faced with, it is important to understand the elements of the crime, the details of your charge, the potential consequences and possible defenses.
