What are the Penalties For White Collar Crimes in Florida?

How to Defend Against White Collar Crimes

 In Florida, there are several defenses that individuals accused of white-collar crimes can employ. Some common defenses against white-collar crimes include:

  • Lack of Intent: If the accused can indicate that they did not have the intention to commit the crime or were unaware of any illegal activity, it could serve as a defense.
  • Lack of Evidence: Challenging the evidence against you is a common defense strategy. This may involve questioning the validity or admissibility of evidence, highlighting flaws in the investigation process, or demonstrating inconsistencies or insufficiencies in the prosecution's case.
  • Entrapment: If the defendant can show that they were induced or coerced by police into executing the crime they would not have otherwise committed, an entrapment defense may be applicable. 
  • Duress: If the accused can prove that they were compelled to commit the crime under immediate threat or coercion, it could be possible to raise a defense of duress.
  • Mistaken Identity: In cases where there may be mistaken identity or misidentification, the defense can provide evidence that the individual accused was not involved in the alleged crime and that there has been a mix-up in identification.
  • Lack of Evidence of Specific Elements: A defense strategy can focus on challenging the prosecution's ability to meet these elements and revealing that there is insufficient evidence to establish guilt.
  • Constitutional Violations: If there were violations of constitutional rights during the investigation or arrest, such as illegal searches or seizures could be raised as a defense.

Remember, the success of a defense strategy depends on the specific circumstances surrounding the case. It is crucial to consult with our Daytona Beach white collar crime attorney, who can evaluate your situation, provide appropriate legal advice, and guide you through the defense process.
