White Collar Crimes

In the past decade, white collar crimes are receiving more serious attention from judges and prosecutors. Ohio prosecutors are aggressively requesting tough criminal penalties. Defense attorney Akamine’s experience as a Prosecutor provides a unique knowledge of how the other side works. This can be a great advantage for you if you are facing white collar criminal charges.

What Are White Collar Crimes?

The term “white collar crime” refers to a broad range of typically non-violent crimes. As the types of cases vary, so do the possible penalties.

Examples of White Collar Crimes include:

  • Embezzlement
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Mail Fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Securities/tax violations

Typically white collar crimes are prosecuted in federal court, and occasionally in a state court. The cases are more likely to be prosecuted in federal court when they involve large amounts of money, and they almost exclusively proceed in federal court if they involve anything related to the stock market or investments.

What are the penalties of White Collar Crimes?

A major component in sentencing guidelines is fraud loss. A table is used which compares the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history of the defendant to yield a recommended sentencing range. For example, if a defendant has a history of criminal convictions, he or she is in danger of falling into a category which recommends a higher standard range sentence.

What can Akamine Law do for me?

To fully understand your potential sentencing guidelines, we’ll start by evaluating the government’s plea offer to see which enhancements they seek as well as what they claim the fraud loss to be.

Remember, you do not have to accept the government’s plea offer. We will carefully analyze whether the fraud loss is accurately reflected and whether any enhancements should apply. Every second you wait could be detrimental to your case. 

Defense Attorney Nathan Akamine successfully challenged the government’s application of sentencing enhancements and their value of economic loss. You can potentially reduce your prison exposure by aggressively fighting the guidelines. Don’t wait. Call Akamine Law now.
