What are White Collar Crimes?
A white collar criminal defense is necessary when you are accused of a white collar crime. Typically, white collar crimes are non-violent offenses that have a financial component. This makes white collar crimes different than most other criminal offenses. They require a special kind of experience not possessed by every criminal defense attorney. At The Locke Law Group we have a great deal of experience in defending accusations of white collar crime. Shannon W. Locke got his white collar criminal experience in two different prosecutor’s office. While at the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Locke prosecuted against the very best criminal defense attorney’s in San Antonio, Texas. When he left the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office, he began defending those accused of white collar crime. He developed techniques for avoiding the filing of charges and minimizing consequences to his clients. Additionally, he began defending clients in The Western District of Texas against federal charges related to white collar crime. Soon, he became a board certified criminal defense attorney after demonstrating his expertise in criminal law.
White collar criminal defense can be complex. You need an attorney with the expertise to defend you.
While white collar crimes can be financially oppressive and embarrassing, their bigger infliction is the damage they can do to your freedom. White collar criminal accusations are extremely serious. Usually, people do not go to prison unless they have a significant criminal record. The big exception to this rule is if you are accused of a sex crime or if you’ve committed a serious violent crime, or if you are accused of stealing a lot of money.
