White collar crimes cover a broad range of offenses, such as:
- Ponzi schemes
- Identity theft
- Fraud in taxes, insurance and securities
These crimes, while not violent, can compromise an individual’s or a corporation’s financial stability or confidential information. White collar crimes can be prosecuted at both the state and federal level and require a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney to protect your future.
Understanding Identity Theft Charges
The evolving digital landscape has made identity theft more prevalent than ever before. Depending on the nature of the crime, it may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Types of identity theft include:
- Possessing personal information with the intent to commit fraud
- Using personal information in a fraudulent manner
- Selling an individual’s or company’s information without consent
- Producing false identification information
Each instance of identity theft is charged separately, even if multiple crimes are committed against the same entity. This can quickly result in a number of charges with severe potential penalties.
