Informed Decision-Making for

frequently asked questions

  • What constitutes a white collar crime in Michigan?
    There is no specific definition of white collar crime, but they typically involve fraud, embezzlement, theft by deception, forgery, counterfeiting, and any combination of these. Bribery, money laundering, and securities violations may also be white collar crimes.
  • How do judges sentence in white collar crimes cases?
    The first consideration is misdemeanor versus felony, with the value of the misappropriated property being the key. A misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in jail, while a higher level felony could mean up to 10 years in prison.
  • What other factors impact sentencing if someone is convicted?
    The judge also will look at your prior criminal history, the number of victims affected, and the nature of the victim, such as an elderly person or nonprofit firm.
  • How can I challenge the allegations in a Grand Rapids white collar crimes case?
    If evidence was obtained from you illegally, you can request the court to find it inadmissible. Without critical information, the prosecution might not be able to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Are there other options for fighting the charges?
    A plea bargain could lead to lesser charges or reduced punishment, though you will need to plead guilty in exchange for this result. In some cases, it is preferred to have a misdemeanor on your record compared to a felony.
  • Do I need a criminal defense attorney for help with white collar crimes?
    A Grand Rapids white collar crimes lawyer is the best way to even the playing field with a criminal case, as the government will always have a prosecutor on its side. A skilled attorney will help challenge the prosecution’s case, file motions, attend court hearings, and advocate on your behalf at trial.
