Get help early on when charged with white collar crime

When many St. Louis residents think of tough sentences in the criminal justice system, they often think of these sentences being handed down for offenses involving violent crimes. In reality, however, even non-violent crimes like embezzlement and other white collar crime can result in severe sentences if a person is convicted on the charges.

This can be troubling, not only because there was no violent crime involved, but also because many individuals facing charges of white collar crime may have unknowingly committed the acts that are at issue in the case. Despite these factors, prosecutors may still bring and litigate charges against a person with the same tenacity as with violent crimes.

Fortunately, individuals have options at their disposal when it comes to defending themselves against the charges. However, it is important to realize this early on in the process, as it can sometimes be possible to work with investigating agencies before charges are even brought against the person. For instance, an agreement might be reached where the charges will not be filed, in exchange for entering into an alternative arrangement.

Even when charges have already been filed, strong defenses may be available. For example, individuals may be able to suppress certain evidence the government has against them, which means the prosecutor will not be able to use the evidence at trial. This can affect the prosecutor's ability to prove the case against the person, which can further motivate the prosecutor to settle or even dismiss the charges.

Our firm has extensive experience in dealing with charges of white collar crime. We understand the various charges the government can bring against a person, and what strategies may be effective based on the facts of a particular case.
