Man pleads guilty to white collar crimes

When people in California think about someone being criminally charged with a white collar crime, they may think about movie plots involving organized crime. They may also think about very large, even international, corporations in which financial officers are accused of a myriad of offenses. However, these charges can apply to many types of individuals, companies and situations.

5 examples of employee theft

Employee theft can take many forms, including embezzling money, directly taking products and stealing information.

Ponzi schemes: the risks and the penalties

Ponzi schemes are no new occurrence in the state of California. Subsequently, the legal system does not take these types of operations lightly -- no matter how minor they may appear. One simple misstep in financial management can result in negative consequences for a lifetime, and can potentially wreck an individual's reputation and career. There are plethoras of media reports on Ponzi schemes, but knowing the details of penalties and those involved can increase future awareness on the issue.
