White-collar crime is a conspiracy to commit or the commission of any felony offense.

Coined back in 1939, white-collar crime is now synonymous with a wide range of frauds committed by government officials and business professionals around the world. It is conspiracy to commit or the commission of any felony offense. Typically, the motivation behind these crimes are financial gain and are not dependent on physical violence or force. Examples of white-collar crime are:

  • Public corruption
  • Money laundering
  • Corporate fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Commodities fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Financial institution fraud
  • Bank fraud and embezzlement
  • Fraud against the government
  • Election law violations
  • Mass marketing fraud or pyramid schemes
  • Health care fraud
  • Extortion
  • Forgery
  • Insurance fraud
  • Identity theft

Most laws sanction a prison sentence and/or significant monetary fines in the state of Nevada. There is no guarantee where you will be serving your prison sentence so the misconception that you will serve “easy-time” is just that, a myth. The actual penalty will depend greatly on:

  • The number of victims involved
  • The type of alleged crime
  • The amount of alleged theft
  • Whether or not the identity of the victim(s) was government, vulnerable individuals, etc.
  • Criminal history
  • Strength of your criminal defense
  • Strength of mitigating circumstances
