White collar charges can severely affect your future

In South Carolina, it is no secret that a criminal conviction can be extremely detrimental to your future prospects and even have an effect on your current employment. This is especially the case if you are in a position of great responsibility as the damage to your reputation could result in you being dismissed. Even during the investigative process, you could be suspended until the authorities have gotten to the bottom of the case.

One way this can happen is if you are accused of committing a white collar crime. These crimes often involve the misuse of company funds or an abuse of power, and can include, fraud, conspiracy, and embezzlement charges, among others. Unfortunately, this means that if even you simply make a mistake, it can place you under suspicion, particularly if the consequences of this error appear to benefit you in any way.

If found guilty, the penalties can extend beyond simply losing your job. You might be fined or even sentenced to time in prison. Furthermore, having a criminal record can reduce your ability to find employment in the future. Naturally, the whole criminal process can also put a significant strain on your daily life and your relationships with friends and family.

If you have come under suspicion for a white collar crime or any other offense, you may find our page on criminal defense useful. An attorney could also be an invaluable ally as he or she may be able to offer advice on your case and how best to proceed with your defense. With the right guidance, you could dramatically improve your chances of ensuring that the court hears your version of events, as you work to clear your name and protect both your reputation and your future.
