WHITE-COLLAR CRIMES IN FEDERAL COURTS. The majority of white collar criminal cases prosecuted in Federal court are wire fraud, money laundering, bank fraud, Medicaid & health care fraud & related conspiracies. Before an arrest is made, there is usually a long-term investigation, often involving confidential sources & surveillance. The role of loss amount in such cases is hard to overestimate. The reason for this is the structure of the United States Sentencing Guidelines (USGG). Defendant pleads guilty in exchange for Government’s recommendation of the sentencing range. This recommendation, however, is not binding on the Judge, who can sentence the Defendant to any punishment allowed by law. Federal law is notorious for very lengthy sentences. For example, the sentencing range for wire fraud is up to 30 years of imprisonment. The Judge is allowed to sentence the defendant outside of the Guidelines, & must take into account various factors regarding defendant, his role in the offense. USSG provides the sentencing range in months of imprisonment, which is a function of criminal history category & the offense level, which is calculated based, among other things, on loss amount to victims. White-collar criminal cases are very complex, require diligent work by defense counsel to achieve the best possible result.
