Were you accused of money laundering? Do not get hung out to dry

If you work in the financial industry, you might become an unwitting and unwilling participant in a money-laundering scheme. Criminal organizations often turn to financial advisers to "wash" their money obtained through criminal activity. An investigation by either Ohio or federal authorities could result in your arrest, even if you did not know your clients used your expertise to launder their ill-gotten gains.

The Fourth Amendment and probable cause

When people are arrested, they often forget that they are innocent until proven guilty and that the U.S. Constitution provides them with certain guarantees that cannot be taken away. One of those rights is enshrined in the Fourth Amendment, which protects people from unreasonable search or seizure. Courts interpret this to mean that police must have probable cause before they can search or arrest a suspect.

Fighting back against charges of white collar crimes

Since white collar crimes seem like victimless crimes, many in Cincinnati don't take the charges seriously. For example, when a violent crime is committed, the victim and their injuries can be identified and therefore charges stemming from those crimes are considered serious and those facing them fight aggressively to protect their rights. However, some people may not fight as aggressively when it comes to white collar criminal charges, and this can be a huge mistake.
