Types of White Collar Crime in California
Although white collar crimes can occur in just about any organization, there are a few types of white collar crime that law enforcement pays special attention to. Wegman & Levin has successfully defended countless clients in cases involving workers’ compensation fraud, real estate and mortgage fraud, Medicare fraud, insurance fraud, and more. Because of the complex nature of fraudulent activity within businesses, innocent people often end up in the line of fire during fraud investigations. Any individual at any level of an organization can be charged with a white collar crime.
State vs. Federal Charges
One important distinction in any fraud case is whether it will take place in state or federal court. Typically, federal courts carry harsher sentences; however, this varies on a case-by-case basis. White collar crimes that involve national systems like the banking system, Medicare, the postal service, or digital operations that cross state lines will generally end up in federal court, while those that only affect local organizations will result in state charges. Wegman & Levin understand the ins and outs of both federal and state courts and can help you put together the best defense for your situation.
