White collar crime refers to financially motivated, nonviolent crime committed by government professionals, businesses, and individuals in the corporate world. Prosecutors in Atlanta and across Georgia have the power to charge a number of white collar crimes in federal and state court, including but not limited to: tax fraud, tax evasion, mail fraud, wire fraud, embezzlement, public corruption, health care fraud, securities violations, bank fraud, and mortgage fraud. For many federal white collar crimes, the United States Sentencing Guidelines consider the total monetary loss involved in the allegation to calculate your sentence. If those losses are high, the guidelines could recommend a life sentence. With no parole in the federal system, the harshness of the sentencing guidelines for nonviolent white collar crimes is extreme. It is imperative that you hire a competent, experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you in any white collar matter.
