White Collar Crime in Houston

What Is a White Collar Crime?

In most cases, these crimes involve the use of a business to conduct illegal activities. It generally refers to nonviolent theft crimes that involve some element of deception. Crimes like embezzlement, insurance fraud, tax fraud and forgery are considered white collar crimes. White collar crime accusations often arise in the workplace and involve individuals whose jobs involve handling money.

For example, if an executive uses business accounts to fund their personal vacations or luxury items, it may be charged as embezzlement. Some businesses misrepresent their earnings or property valuations to obtain a better tax or insurance rate.

Just as in any criminal case, a person accused of a white collar crime is not required to prove his or her innocence; it is the prosecution that must prove every element of the accusation beyond a reasonable doubt. One of the most important elements in any white collar crime case is intent. In many cases the defendant is guilty of no more than a good faith mistake.

In any case, The Law Offices of Jed Silverman can help you understand the law as it applies to your situation and build a strong case in your defense.
