What To Do If You Are Accused Of A White Collar Crime

White collar crimes generally include illegal actions involving money, paperwork and computer transactions. There is no victim of a violent crime, but individuals or institutions experience losses through others' criminal activities. Specific offenses in the California Penal Code that fall under the umbrella of white collar crimes include:

  • Embezzlement
  • Theft by fraud
  • Fraud by way of identity theft (ID theft)
  • Forgery
  • Extortion
  • Bribery
  • Tax evasion
