White collar crimes are complex and expensive for prosecutors to pursue, due to the investigation time and documentation required to establish evidence that is legally valid and can be presented to a jury. Building cases involving white collar crimes is time consuming and creates an enormous burden of proof on the district attorney. In addition, these cases often involve more than one defendant.
Often, white collar criminal defendants are not aware of the investigation until the government convenes a grand jury to review the investigation and listen to testimony. In some cases, an individual may become aware or begin to suspect they are being investigated. If this is true in your situation, it is best to contact a criminal defense attorney with experience defending clients accused of white collar crimes.
An experienced criminal defense lawyer will protect your rights to privacy and due process during the investigation and ensure that the government shows that you were not a victim of entrapment.
