White Collar Crimes Attorney in Akron
About White Collar Crimes
Offenses which are of a nonviolent nature and include the goal of achieving
money in an illegal manner are considered white collar crimes. Typically,
white collar crimes are committed by executives and upper management in
any type of occupation.
White collar crimes are of a very complex nature and will require an experienced
defense attorney to fight for you. In a common circumstance, white collar
crimes are fully investigated before the defendant has even been notified
of the allegations against him or her. In some cases, the alleged perpetrator
was not aware of the crime he or she allegedly committed.
Akron Criminal Defense Lawyer Defends Your Charges
Christopher G. Thomarios, Esq. LLC, I defend the freedom of those who are charged with a white collar crime.
Various forms of white collar crimes exist and I handle cases in both
state and federal courts. If you have been charged with any of the following
white collar crimes, then call my firm. As an
Akron criminal defense lawyer, I provide tough defense for the following offenses:
My firm handles the defense of many types of fraud, including mail fraud,
mortgage fraud, and honest services fraud. If you are under investigation
for illegal dealings that violate your duty to represent a constituency
and to provide honest services, I can protect your rights. Fraud is defined
Ohio Revised Code (ORC) § 2913.01 as the criminal deception intended for financial or personal gain.
Embezzlement is a type of property theft crime that occurs when a defendant,
who is entrusted to manage another's money or property, steals a portion
of that asset for his or her personal gain. The defendant typically had
access to the money but did not possess ownership. Embezzlement in Ohio
can be punished based on the value of money or property stolen.
Public corruption is a criminal offense that poses a threat to national
and statewide safety. The breach of public trust and abuse from a local,
state, or federal official is referred to as public corruption. Whether
elected, appointed, or hired, the official will be charged with this offense
if he or she receives anything of value in exchange for an influence in
his or her opinions.
If you are charged with or under investigation of bribery, your case will
require the skilled representation of an aggressive defense lawyer. Bribery
is the act of giving money for the purpose of altering the behavior or
opinion of the recipient. Bribery is considered a crime when items of
value are given to influence an official's vote or action.
Grand theft is the criminal offense of unlawful stealing of another's
property. Grand theft is distinguished from petit theft because the value
is below the grand theft limit. Theft can be divided into categories of
felony and misdemeanor.
Criminal activity involving the wrongful obtainment and use of another's
personal information for some type of personal gain is referred to as
identity theft. Personal data that can be unlawfully used includes one's
Social Security number, bank account number, or credit card number.
Racketeering is a criminal offense that commonly takes place within a business.
Organized criminal activity is the essence of racketeering and is restricted
by the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970. Racketeering includes criminal
offenses such as bribery, counterfeiting, embezzlement, and some types of fraud.
The specific goal of
Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act ("RICO") is to punish those who use an enterprise to engage
in organized crime. Those who engage in racketeering can be convicted
under the RICO criminal statute which is 18 U.S.C.A. 1963. RICO is part
of the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970 as an action against the increasing
amount of organized crime since prohibition.
In the United States, gambling has undergone a substantial amount of change.
There are a number of rules and regulations that apply to the gambling
industry. Although there is not a set branch of law, gambling regulations
are included within criminal law, administrative law, and other branches.
Cyberbullying is a form of bullying that occurs with the use of electronic
technology. Common forms of cyberbullying include cruel text messages
or emails, rumors spread through social networking sites, and the posting
of embarrassing pictures or videos. Ohio has taken actions to prevent
bullying. Current anti-bullying laws include cyberbullying as of November 4, 2012.
