White Collar Crimes
In Maryland, any theft of an amount over One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) is considered a felony. Shoplifting, minor theft, theft schemes, fraud and fraud schemes are considered “white-color” crimes and are not viewed as crimes of violence. However, depending on your charges you could face anywhere from 90 days to 20 years in prison.
These charges take considerable effort & coordination to defend, lending themselves huge mountains of evidence & paperwork. It is imperative that you attain counsel as soon as possible because the state already sent out subpoenas, gathered their documents and organized their case. The clock is ticking once the charges have been filed.
