White collar crime in Virginia might not sound as serious as other crimes that frequently occur, but the fact is that they can lead to hefty fines and incarceration. The amount of the fines and the duration of the prison sentence can be as severe, if not more so, than other criminal activities. One of the most important factors when confronted with white collar crime charges is lodging a strong defense against the allegations.

There are numerous forms of white collar crimes. These can include false documentation, health care fraud, identity theft and credit card fraud. People who have been charged with white collar crimes can present a variety of defenses. It is possible that a person who is charged was not aware that there were criminal activities being perpetrated. Someone might have been involved in a business deal that they thought was legitimate, but was not. There is also the chance that the accused got caught up in a situation and did something that was illegal.

Regardless of the circumstances, everyone is entitled to a competent legal defense. While law enforcement is frequently documented in news reports as pursuing crimes involving violence they are also serious about pursuing white collar criminal activities. Some white collar crimes, like Ponzi schemes, can often do far more damage to a greater number of people than one-on-one crimes.

Having legal help to investigate the charges can help the accused find evidence that law enforcement may have missed. One of the most important aspects of white collar crime charges is to formulate a plan for the defense. When facing allegations of white collar crime, the first call that a person should make is to an experienced attorney to protect themselves and begin the process of putting together a defense.
