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.

At 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:

Fraud

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 under the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) § 2913.01 as the criminal deception intended for financial or personal gain.

Embezzlement

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

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.

Bribery

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 Thef t

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.

Identity Theft

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

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.

RICO

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.

Gambling

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

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.
