White collar crimes are generally nonviolent crimes that are committed for monetary gain. The Fresno County courts punish individuals that are convicted of white collar crimes severely, and if a criminal conviction occurs, a mandatory prison sentence may result.
If you have been arrested or accused of committing a white collar crime, you need to contact an experienced criminal attorney immediately because these charges are serious and you will not be able to talk your way out of the charges.
White collar offenses often violate several laws, and they are almost always felony offenses. Therefore, it is crucial that you retain an aggressive Fresno criminal lawyer to fight the white collar crimes against you.
If you suspect that you are under criminal investigation for a white collar crime, it is essential that you do not speak with or cooperate with police, FBI, or other investigators until you have consulted with an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Aggravated while collar enhancement may occur when a person who is convicted of two or more fraud-related or embezzlement-related felonies, in a single prosecution, that result in a loss of more than $100,000 shall be punished with an additional consecutive imprisonment.
This enhancement will be charged if there is a "pattern of related felony conduct" which means engaging in at least two felonies that have same or similar purpose, result, victims, principals, methods of commission, or are otherwise related by distinguishing characteristics and are not isolated events.
White collar enhancements will result in a prison sentence even when the crime is not a violent or serious crime. This means that if a person is sentenced to prison, the time must be served in state prison as opposed to the local county jail. Therefore, retaining a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer is your best bet to stay out of prison.
