Call Christopher J. Frericks, Attorney at Law for Reliable Legal Counsel

What exactly is a white collar crime? In the state of Illinois, this is a set of offenses that are classified as nonviolent, though still very harmful to victims. These types of crimes usually have to do with a violation, breach, or deceptive use of financial transactions. Normally, the person who commits the crime has been designated as having an increased level of trust to deal with the financial responsibility.

Being charged with a white collar crime is a serious matter. In many cases, prosecutors will take both state and federal accusations and seek to cast you in the worst possible light. Penalties can involve impossibly large fines, as well as long prison sentences. This is why you need our Peoria white collar crime attorney on your side. Christopher J. Frericks, Attorney at Law is ready to aggressively represent you.

Defending Against a White Collar Crime

Although it is clear that there are many different types of white collar crimes, there are also many avenues to pursue when it comes to building a strong defense. For example, there may have been some coercion from one’s superiors, forcing a person to act against their will. In addition, we have often noticed law enforcement utilizing unfair entrapment because they are too zealous in making arrests. In other cases, there may have been a complete misunderstanding between parties, leading to a case of mistaken identity.
