Defense for White Collar Crime Charges in Hudson Valley
"White collar crime" is a phrase coined to describe financially
motivated criminal offenses like fraud or embezzlement. The "white
collar" in white collar crime refers to high social status, in contrast
to the "blue collar" middle class worker. White collar crimes
are commonly classified as federal offenses and investigated by federal
agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS).
If you have been implicated for involvement in a white collar crime, you

Indictment for White Collar Crimes
In serious or complex cases, like many white collar crimes are, the defendant
can be indicted by a grand jury. The other option would be for the prosecutor
(either a state prosecutor or U.S. Attorney for federal cases) to file
charges directly with the court. White collar crime indictments often
include many separate counts.
Example: 4 counts of fraud, 10 counts of intellectual property theft, and
5 counts of money laundering.
