Penalties for Wake County White Collar Crime Convictions

Every white collar crime is different. Not only do the types of fraud vary, but so do the dollar amounts involved in the schemes in question. The type of crime and amount of money that was fraudulently obtained will largely determine the severity of your consequences if you are found guilty of a white collar crime in Wake County. 

For example, if you have been accused of embezzling more than $1,000, you could expect to face federal felony charges which are punishable by fines of as much as $250,000 and up to ten years in prison. 

Conversely, if you were charged with forgery of corporate security you could be charged with a Class I felony. This is punishable by up to ten months in prison and fines at the discretion of the court. 

After having carefully examined the details of your case, your white collar crime lawyer will be able to give you a better idea of what penalties you’re facing and what defense strategy is most like to produce favorable results.
