White collar crime: an ever-wider prosecutorial focus for feds

The Law Office of John W. Noonan has advocated diligently for decades on behalf of defendants from California and nationally facing federal criminal charges.

We note on a relevant page of our website that it’s essentially a different game when it comes to alleged federal criminal activity. Investigatory teams are comparatively well-heeled when it comes to funding and resources. And federal sentencing guidelines frequently result in notably harsh outcomes for convicted individuals than can far surpass the penalties doled out in state matters.

“Simply put,” we stress on our site, “there is a world of difference between federal and state criminal charges.”

And there is this also: a large compendium of federal crime matters that are typically included under the category of so-called white collar criminal activity. Those range broadly from embezzlement and tax evasion to public corruption and myriad fraud-linked offenses.

It is worth pointing that out because of the pronounced emphasis that white collar crime is receiving these days from federal principals. Those individuals range widely from high government officials and agency heads to prosecutors and high-powered law enforcement teams.

It is no overstatement to note that white collar criminal probes are increasing across the country, with their focus being on expanded areas of behavior that weren’t always deemed a top-tier focus for investigators. A recent media spotlight on that subject reports, for example, that the U.S. Department of Justice is beefing up its team of crime experts/analysts “to support its investigations into a wider range of white collar crimes.”

Questions or concerns regarding a white collar criminal accusation or charge can be directed to a proven defense attorney with a demonstrated history of diligent client representation in this singular legal area.
