Honolulu White Collar Crimes Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu White Collar Crimes Attorney

The term “white collar crimes” relates to financial crimes that are non-violent in nature. These crimes are usually committed by individuals, businesses, or government professionals. It was first defined by the sociologist Edwin Sutherland in 1939 as “a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of their occupation”. Because these crimes were thought to be usually perpetrated by people who wore suits, the term “white collar crimes.” was born.

Typical white-collar crimes may include:

White-collar crimes usually involve some type of fraud or deception as a means for financial gain. In many cases, these crimes are committed by people in the context of their workplace position who have or can gain access to their company’s bank accounts. These positions might include banking, investment firms, accounting, insurance, or mortgage industries. These types of crimes can be charged at the state or federal level. White-collar crime investigations may involve accounting and bookkeeping forensics.

Many times, in white collar cases the prosecution will be required to prove the defendant did not simply make a mistake. By doing this they will investigate what is known as the mens rea of the defendant or in other words, the mental state of the person charged. The prosecution needs to prove that the defendant acted with bad intent.

White collar crimes can be very serious and in certain cases involve mandatory prison, if the amount involved exceeds $100,000.00. These cases can be time-consuming and expensive to defend because they may require the use of many financial experts, such as tax professionals, forensic accountants, document examiners, and other investigators.
