People from all parts of society can be accused of crimes: the well-to-do, the middle-class, and the working poor. The law does not differentiate between social classes when someone is accused of a crime. No matter how comfortable or how indigent you may be, you could be charged with a white collar crime—and if you are facing criminal charges, it can come as a horrible shock. Where do you turn? Who can help you fight these charges? If you are facing one or more criminal charges due to alleged white collar crime in Los Angeles County, contact a white collar crime attorney in Manhattan Beach at Okabe and Haushalter to find out more about your defense options in court.
Federal and state laws may apply to white collar crimes
While certain white collar crimes may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies under the California State Penal Code, other crimes may break federal laws and be charged in federal court. Some crimes, such as embezzlement, may be classified as misdemeanors under the law depending on how much money was alleged to have been involved in the crime. Other crimes, such as wire fraud, are federal offenses regardless of how much the monetary transactions themselves were, and the penalties for these crimes may be quite harsh if the accused party is convicted. No matter how big or how small the crime you are accused of committing is, whether it is a misdemeanor or a serious federal felony, you have the right to an attorney in court. The attorneys at Okabe and Haushalter are ready to stand beside you in any courtroom and defend you against any crime.
