State and federal financial crimes have different penalties
The Texas Attorney General’s office emphasizes financial crimes as one of its main areas of focus. I have significant experience as a criminal defense attorney handling a wide variety of financial crimes cases. Some of these case types include:
- Embezzlement: Embezzlement is a white collar crime that involves an employee with responsibility over corporate funds stealing money or assets from a company while covering up the evidence. Embezzlement becomes a felony if a certain amount of money is stolen.
- Bankruptcy fraud: This fraud involves concealing assets or documents and making fraudulent claims or false statements. It is a federal crime, particularly when forms are falsified, constituting perjury.
- Extortion: Extortion is the obtaining of money, property or services from another party through coercion, such as a threat of violence, an act of violence or blackmail. The crime does not require actually obtaining the money to be considered extortion.
- Bid rigging: This fraud occurs when one party secretly promises a commercial contract to another, despite other parties also offering bids. It is collusion and is punishable by fines and/or imprisonment.
- Bribery: Bribery is the use of money or other gifts to control the actions of another person.
- Money laundering: This involves taking money gained through illegal means (such as distributing illegal drugs) and converting it into usable cash, often through a front business or enterprise. It is a felony punishable by prison time, probation and more.
- Credit card fraud: This fraud involves using a credit card as a fraudulent fund source to obtain goods or services without paying or to obtain funds without authorization from an account. Depending on the amount of money obtained in the crime, it could be considered a felony.
