Defending Against White Collar Crimes in Sonoma, Napa, & Mendocino Counties
“White collar” is a term applied to certain offenses that are often carried out by those in positions of authority or trust and/or committed in the course of their employment. These are crimes that are commonly financially motivated and typically involve some kind of deceit or theft. Despite the fact that they are not violent, they carry hefty penalties upon conviction.
White collar crimes can destroy reputations, careers, and businesses. Defending these crimes takes a skilled attorney with an eye for detail who can comb through paperwork and evaluate your case thoroughly. These crimes may also call for experts, such as forensic accountants and IT professionals, to help review and assess data and documentation.

What are the Penalties for White Collar Crimes in California?
Despite the fact that these crimes are generally nonviolent, penalties upon a conviction could include repayment of restitution to victims, probation, forfeiture of assets, fines, jail time, or even prison terms. How you are punished will depend on the nature of the time, the extent of the financial damage to victims, and other circumstances specific to your case.
These offenses may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, and many are “wobblers,” which means they could be charged either way, depending on the specifics of the case and your criminal history, if any.
Is Fraud a Crime of Moral Turpitude?
Fraud crimes are also commonly regarded as crimes of “moral turpitude” in California, which can lead to removal or deportation for those who are not U.S. citizens. They may also lead to the suspension or revocation of a professional license needed for your career.
