White Collar Crimes

San Antonio White Collar Crime Attorneys

Aggressively Fighting Serious Criminal Charges

If you have been accused of committing identity theft, fraud, conspiracy, or any other kind of “white-collar crime,” you will need a dedicated criminal defense tailored to the specifics of your charge. This is because the circumstances behind these financial crimes are usually much murkier, and prosecutors will try to find creative entrapments that deny your rights as they endeavor to find a scapegoat at any cost.

In many situations, even if corruption is actually occurring, higher-level managers will try to blame lower-level associates to save their reputation. This is why your white-collar crime lawyers in San Antonio are dedicated to offering an aggressive defense. Count on The Law Office of Derek S. Ritchie, PLLC to support you no matter how high the stakes.

Call (210) 702-2203 to discuss your case with our attorneys.

Penalties for White Collar Criminal Convictions in Texas

There is no exact penalty automatically assigned for each white-collar crime. This is because the punishment for every conviction depends on the exact details of the situation. For example, if the defendant had a criminal history, if the crime was committed against a vulnerable elderly or disabled person, or if there was a large number affected by the crime, then the penalty will usually be much higher.

Moreover, according to Chapter 12 of the Texas Penal Code, misdemeanors and felonies both have distinct fines and jail sentences. Misdemeanors could range in fines from $500 to $4,000, with sentences of up to a year. However, depending on the charges’ classification, a felony could result in a prison sentence of 2 years with a fine of up to $10,000, or it could result in life-long imprisonment. These severe consequences are not something to take lightly, which is why it is so crucial to get aggressive legal representation from our white-collar crime attorneys in San Antonio as soon as possible.
