Potential Penalties of White Collar Crimes
Crimes like fraud, embezzlement, and identity theft may not be violent in nature, but they are taken seriously under Texas law.
If convicted of a white collar crime, you could be facing:
- Jail or prison time
- Expensive fines
- Job loss
You may also be hit with a civil lawsuit on top of the criminal charges.
Many white collar crimes are well organized and carried out by multiple people who share the same goal. This means that there is often an effort to conspire and plan out an intended crime before the crime is actually committed.
Most state and federal laws require that conspiracy be proven by:
- An explicit agreement
- A goal that is unlawful in nature
- Knowledge and intent to commit an unlawful act
- An overt act towards achieving the criminal goal
Under these laws, the intended crime does not need to be committed so long as these four elements have been proven true. Many prosecutors pursue conspiracy charges, so it is in your best interest to avoid communicating with any other alleged conspirators or with the police. Instead, discuss your situation with our San Antonio white collar crime attorneys so that we can advise you on how to proceed.
