Know your defense options for a white collar charge

by | Nov 22, 2019 | White Collar Crimes |

A person who is charged with a white collar crime needs to learn about their defense options. These vary greatly, depending on the circumstances, so you have to think carefully about the specific points that surround the case. We know that this is something that you never thought would happen, but you don’t have time to dwell on that right now. Instead, it is time to get to work on your defense.

These cases often have a lot of paperwork that go along with them. Taking the time to go through all this can be a challenge, but it is necessary so that you can ensure you are able to review all the defense strategy options you have. Your defense strategy can only be based on pure facts. What might make a difference is how you present those facts.

Your job as the defendant is to try to introduce doubt into the mind of each juror. The prosecutor’s job is to present a case that enables the jury to convict you without a reasonable doubt. This means that if you can sow one seed of doubt into a juror, they can’t find you guilty.

Your defense strategy should address the major points that the prosecutor is going to address. If you have an alibi, you need to try to determine how it might be received by the jury. You need to be able to show what you say happened, such as being able to prove that you didn’t have a part in the white collar crime. You might also be able to show that there wasn’t any intent to commit the crime. Your defense attorney can help you to develop a strategy for your case.
