White collar crimes can threaten your career. Many careers involve having to be trustworthy and filled with integrity. For this reason, people who are facing white collar crime charges need to work hard on their defense to try to protect their career.

There are some instances in which white collar crimes have complex elements that you must scrutinize when you are planning your defense. Each one of these elements might be a point that you can call into question when you are planning your defense.

The burden is on the prosecution to prove that you did what they claim you did. This means that they will have to show the jurors proof that you committed the crimes beyond a reasonable doubt. You have to poke enough holes in the prosecution’s claims so that the jurors think twice about whether they can believe the prosecution or not.

If you know that your case is likely to end in a conviction, you might need to work on minimizing the penalties that you are going to face. In this case, thinking about a plea deal might be the way you need to go.
