White collar crimes are treated very seriously when a case can be made… but sometimes it is difficult for the prosecution to bring a case against you in the first case. Because these cases usually involve large amounts of money and resources, everything that happens in your case needs to be done by standard. So why are these cases so hard for the prosecution to bring?
3 Reasons Why
Difficult to Prove: There are many types of white collar crimes, like money laundering, insider trading, and more. The burden of proof falls to the prosecution, the accusers. You see a lot of these cases where they end up being dismissed because of lack of proof.
Cases Taking Too Long: Because these cases involve a full discovery investigation, it can take years for both sides to investigate and present their evidence against a defendant to the best of their ability.
Gridlock: We find ourselves in a state where lawmakers are constantly changing the laws and regulations on how to prosecute their crimes, how much of a role the government should play, and the punishments that should follow when you are prosecuted. This could mean that resolutions do not come easily.
Speaking of investigation, this is something that you should be prepared for because it will be the tell-all in your case. All white collar crime cases start with an investigation after you have been arrested. They will start investigating most of the time after they have received tips that lead them to you, which will lead to them looking through related documents, e-mails, and more that could help them build a case.
