Restitution Can Ruin You Financially. Get The Right Lawyer In Your Corner.
Whether you are charged in federal or state court will have a lot to do with the alleged financial losses. In Missouri, anything over $500 is a class C felony, while losses exceeding $25,000 is a class B felony. Cases in which the loss amount approaches six figures are usually prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in federal court. These cases also usually have many alleged victims and also deal with banks or other financial institutions.
In addition to fines and prison, white collar crime convictions usually result in restitution orders. If convicted, you could be on the hook for thousands or even millions of dollars.
This is where having the right legal representation is important. I can work with forensic accountants and computer experts to find our own evidence, along with evaluating prosecutors’ evidence to attempt to have your charges reduced or dismissed. As a litigator, I am experienced in using any leverage to negotiate with prosecutors for a better outcome.
