DEA uses GPS device to track down suspect

No matter the severity of a crime, if an individual is convicted, he or she is likely to endure life-impacting penalties. Many do not realize the consequences of a conviction on drug charges. They may be under the impression that only violent crimes carry heavy fines and lengthy prison sentences. However, when it comes to drug charges, the severity varies depending on a number of factors, including the amount of controlled substance the accused was allegedly found with and the number of times someone has been convicted of a crime before.

Is insider trading always illegal?

There are some white collar crimes that are confusing to understand. Insider trading charges are prime examples of this because they are legal in some instances and illegal in others. This is why it is important for Cincinnati residents to understand what the term means and what can make it illegal.

At the heart of many white collar crimes is one word: Fraud

The word "fraud" covers a litany of actions. People often use it too liberally when it comes to the actions of otherwise law-abiding citizens here in Ohio and elsewhere. Due to their non-violent nature, people often envision white-collar crimes as crimes committed by con men in expensive suits with slicked back hair and a flair for the dramatic. This Hollywood vision of someone accused of fraud grossly misrepresents the people who end up facing charges for some type of fraud.

Experience counts when defending against criminal charges

Ohio residents spend years building their reputation, either as a dedicated and loyal worker or business owner or as an impeccable member of their society. Maintaining that reputation is often a crucial part of their career, as people are willing to work with someone they trust unhesitatingly. It is unfortunate then that white-collar criminal charges, levied so quickly at times, have the effect of tarnishing one's reputation and career so quickly.

When is copyright infringement a criminal case?

The Internet makes searching and sharing information easy, but sharing can lead to copyright infringement. Simple searches reveal music, artistic images, literary work and technical drawings for anyone to see, and unfortunately, even misuse, albeit unknowingly. Many people may not even be aware they are breaking the law because they don’t know what copyright infringement entails.

Ohio man accused of money laundering from nonprofit

When a person is accused of a white-collar crime, they may think that the situation is not too serious. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Prosecutors in Ohio will not go easy on those they accuse of committing a white-collar crime, and will prosecute them to the full extent possible. Therefore, those accused of white-collar crimes should take all the steps necessary to defend themselves, as one Ohio man may soon need to do.
