Michigan white-collar crimes can be confusing to many people since there are no statutes specifically mentioning the term. However, these offenses encompass elements of theft, fraud, bribery, and conspiracy, all of which are covered extensively in criminal laws. Together, they create a system where a white-collar crime may be a misdemeanor or felony. The penalties are severe, but there are opportunities to defend the allegations. The government has a heavy burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, often giving you an edge.

To maximize your defense options after an arrest for white-collar crimes, you should make it a priority to retain an experienced lawyer. These cases involve complex fact patterns and forensic investigations, and David G. Moore, Attorney at Law, is ready for the challenges. As a former prosecutor, he handled many complicated felony cases, preparing him to transition to the defense side in private practice. Mr. Moore now dedicates his knowledge and trial advocacy skills to assisting defendants, including those facing serious white-collar crime charges.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How does Michigan define a white collar crime?
    There is no provision in the criminal laws on these crimes, but they involve violations of other statutes. A white collar crime may incorporate facts related to theft, larceny, embezzlement, bribery, and may other offenses.
  • What are the penalties for a white collar crime?
    A misdemeanor offense is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a fine, but many white collar crimes are felonies. Depending on the value of the misappropriated property, you could spend 20 years or more behind bars.
  • Can I challenge the evidence used by the prosecution?
    When police are overly aggressive in investigating and gathering evidence, they may violate your rights. Any information turned up by an unlawful search and seizure can be challenged, possibly leading to it being tossed out of court.
  • Are there other defense strategies?
    The burden is on the government to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. However, the complicated financial issues and business transactions make it difficult to meet. A solid strategy is attacking the facts and other weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case.
  • Is plea bargaining an option for white collar crimes?
    Yes, you may be able to negotiate an agreement with the prosecutor to avoid the harshest punishment. You will need to plead guilty, in exchange for reduced charges, penalties, or both.
  • Why do I need a Portage white collar crimes attorney?
    A lawyer is critical to protect your rights throughout the process, including investigations, arraignment, pretrial, and at trial. You also benefit from legal help during plea bargain negotiations to ensure the deal is fair.
  • What is the first step if I suspect I'm under investigation for a white collar crime?
    If you suspect you're under investigation for a white collar crime, it's crucial to seek legal advice immediately. Refrain from speaking to law enforcement or investigators without your attorney present. D.G. Moore Law can provide timely assistance, advising you on the best course of action to protect your rights and interests.
