Penalties for White Collar Crime
In most cases, white collar crimes are Category B or Category C felonies. As a result of these felony charges, you can face imprisonment from 1 to 20 years and get fines of up to $100,000 not including restitution, attorneys' fees and the costs to repair the credit history or ratings that can be destroyed if you are charged with identify theft.
There is a misconception that people accused of white collar felonies get light sentences. The truth is that in the wake of recent financial scandals and fraud the state of Nevada and the Federal government is prosecuting white collar crime to the fullest extent of the law. If you have multiple counts or violations the fines and prison terms can be staggering.
A felony conviction will stay on your permanent record for a long time making it difficult for you to get desired employment or even rent a home in Nevada. If you are accused of white collar crimes, you need to take the charges very seriously.
