Successful, Aggressive, and Relentless
The type of defense that a person uses after being charged with a white collar crime will depend in large part on the specific crime in question. There are, however, a few common defense strategies that have proven successful more often than others, including:
- A lack of intent, which involves proving that a defendant did not intentionally violate state or federal law;
- Entrapment, which can be used as a defense when a defendant was pushed into the criminal activity by undercover law enforcement officers;
- Evidence obtained through unlawful search or seizure, which if established, can result in the illegally seized evidence being thrown out by the court;
- Coercion, which requires proof that a defendant was coerced or forced into committing the fraudulent act in question; and
- Lack of knowledge, which involves providing proof that the defendant did not have knowledge that a crime was being committed.
