Federal White Collar Crimes
Wilmington Federal White Collar Crimes Defense Attorneys (18 U.S.C. § 641)
Aggressive investigation by the federal government of questionable business practices has turned what used to be excusable as mistakes, oversight or negligence into criminal investigation of federal fraud charges. An innocent mistake often now involves warrants to search business records and files, subpoenas for confidential business information, subpoenas to testify before a grand jury and indictments against unsuspecting business owners and operators.
White collar crimes are so named because they are considered victimless crimes. In other words, they do not usually involve a weapon or a threat of violence, but an allegation of deceit or a violation of trust. As a former prosecutor in New Hanover County and now an experienced criminal defense attorney, Patrick Roberts of Roberts Law Group, PLLC, has handled a number of white collar crimes cases at both the federal and state level.
