When you are being investigated for white collar fraud, embezzlement, theft or other financial crimes, you should always seek the advice of a competent criminal defense attorney before speaking to any investigator. Unlike other crimes, white collar crimes take time to investigate, process and file. Often, law enforcement agencies will conduct several interviews with suspects, witnesses and victims before they ever submit their case to the DA's office.
Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas has taken a very tough stance on white collar crimes. Often, in Orange County, individuals will be charged with tens or hundreds of counts relating to criminal conduct. While the numbers are certainly eye-popping, the custody time associated with white collar crimes is equally dramatic.
If you want to best protect yourself, it is important to contact an Orange County Criminal defense attorney to assist you in handling your case from the very beginning.
