Legal Defenses for White Collar Theft

In order to be guilty of a white-collar theft involving fraud, you have to have fraudulent intent. This legal defense works if you didn’t intend to commit fraud.

Perhaps you are the victim of mistaken identity and you were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

White collar thefts are usually well-planned and thought out. It’s possible that the person who committed the crime set it up to make it look like the defendant did it. False accusations happen very often with white collar theft.

Entrapment can be used as a legal defense if you only committed a white-collar theft because the police coerced into committing a fraudulent crime in order to catch you.

Have you been legally accused of committing white collar theft? If you have been arrested or charged with a crime, it is essential to obtain legal council for help. It’s important to take your charges seriously. Don’t just hope for the best. Hire an attorney who understands your situation and the consequences you face.
