“White Collar Crime” is typically considered a crime that occurs in a professional setting, whether public or private, for an illegal personal, monetary gain. For example, a person may be accused of stealing money from a business or private club. Most people accused of what would be considered a white collar crime are normally charged with a theft-based offense like:
• Theft by unlawful taking
• Theft by deception
• Identity Theft
• Money Laundering
If you or a loved one has been charged with any of the above-crimes or any other theft-related offense, contact White Collar Criminal Defense Attorney Shawn M. Curry today.
Don’t Hesitate or It May be Too Late
Given the nature of white collar crimes, people facing such accusations often become aware of a criminal investigation into their alleged conduct before the filing of criminal charges. The police may contact you offering an opportunity for an interview to “set the record straight” or “give your side of the story” or “cooperate to help yourself out.” Before you accept such invitation from the police, it is imperative that you align yourself with PA Criminal Defense Attorney before it’s too late.
The police offer you an opportunity to participate in an interview because it is to their advantage. The police are trained and skilled in interrogation techniques. Even if you think it is a misunderstanding or you can avoid making direct, incriminating statements, honest mistakes of fact or inconsistencies in statements made by you can be indirectly incriminating and become the lynchpin in the prosecution’s case against you.
By obtaining an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney, you can level the playing field. Criminal Defense Lawyer Shawn M. Curry can insulate you from making unnecessary and incriminating statements to the police. While protecting your rights and interests, we can communicate with the police in a professional manner so that a decision not to cooperate does not result in you being labeled as uncooperative.
Whether you are under investigation or have been formally charged, it is important that we get involved in your case at the earliest possible stage. The sooner we can get control of your case the less likely it is to snowball out of control.
