Salem, MA White Collar Crime Attorney

What Are White Collar Crimes?

White collar crimes are non-violent crimes that usually involve some kind of fraud with a financial gain for the individual engaged in the crime.

These crimes include many types of fraud, such as:

  • Mortgage fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Mail or wire fraud
  • Bank fraud

Other types of financial crimes such as embezzlement, insider trading or forgery are also considered white collar crimes. See a Salem criminal defense lawyer today, if you have been charged in any type of financial crime, as the penalties in a conviction can be extremely severe, and may be served in federal prison if the charges were filed in federal court.

Fighting Charges of Fraud, Embezzlement, Forgery & More

A white collar crime conviction can lead to a long prison sentence, restitution, loss of all your personal property and assets and other financial and personal repercussions. Even just facing charges could destroy your professional reputation. For example, embezzlement, a theft crime, will forever compromise your ability to get quality employment, as prospective employers are not likely to engage your services in their company. Retaining the services of KRP Law, LLC could protect your life in many regards.

The sentencing for white collar crimes in Massachusetts varies based upon the amount of money in the case. For example, usury, which is charging more than the legal rate of interest on a loan, can carry a sentence of up to ten years in state prison and a fine of up to ten thousand dollars. In section one of Massachusetts law, forging any kind of document from a will to a traveler's check could be punishable by up to ten years in state prison.
