Have you been slapped with charges saying you are a repeat DUI offender? If so, you might want to pay attention.

Are white-collar crimes overcriminalized?

Questions like this have become the center point of debate in recent years.

About intellectual property theft and copyright infringement

Intellectual property theft is a punishable offense in all of the United States, but this realm of white collar crime remains somewhat muddled in many cases. Intellectual property falls into a massive range of topics from copyrights to written works to art to music.

Theft, burglary or larceny charges can involve comparatively minor shoplifting incidents to big business corporate stealing or trafficking stolen goods.

'Crazy Eddie' mastermind helps prosecution with criminal charges

When you think of white collar crime, your first thought may go to the infamous Bernie Madoff, an investment broker and stock trader who was convicted back in 2001 for what is considered the largest Ponzi scheme in United States history. Madoff reportedly bilked billions of dollars from his clients in an elaborate financial con and was eventually sentenced to 150 years in prison after he was convicted.

The differences between pyramid and Ponzi schemes

Pyramid and Ponzi schemes are two types of investment fraud. They are both similar in that they often promise investors a way to make money, but in reality, these schemes involve paying members who have been participating the longest with the money that is brought in by new investors. Both Ponzi and pyramid schemes are illegal and are generally considered to be white collar crimes.

Questions to ask when forming a DUI defense
