The Most Common White Collar Crimes in New York
Let us discuss a few of the most common white collar crimes prosecuted in New York.
The first one is the crime of Grand Larceny. It is defined as unlawful stealing for a property that is valued at more than $1,000. As long as the value is more than $1,000, regardless of the increment, an act is already considered as grand larceny.
The trick often done by some prosecutors is to balloon up the value of the property to increase the penalty as well we the damages involved.
The penalty for Grand Larceny ranges from between 4 years up to 25 years in imprisonment. There are also different factors involved in prosecuting this crime. If the accused already has a prior felony conviction, probation is no longer available as an option.
How about the defense? Defending a Grand Larceny case is complicated as it is dependent on high technicality. If you are looking for the right kind of defense, Attorney Nuridinov is the right defense lawyer.
Tax Fraud is a hefty white collar crime. It is defined in New York and Federal law as when “taxpayers intentionally try to avoid taxes they owe”. It is considered as a form of cheating the government.
Tax evasion and fraud include the following acts: ● failing to file a return;
- failing to report total income;
- failing to remit monies collected;
- selling untaxed liquor;
- selling untaxed motor fuel; and
- selling untaxed cigarettes.
When you are fighting against government revenues, you should expect a backlash. With tax evasion charges, a solid case is often built by the Federal government even before the individual finds out that he is being audited.
In the State of New York, reporting possible cases of tax evasion has been made easier with the help of the NY state website. The tax department has ensured that reaching them is easy for informants and the details are kept confidential.
With that, if you are facing a heavy tax evasion case, you need the right defensive skills of a good lawyer. Attorney Nuridinov is skilled in this aspect. You can never go wrong with hiring him on retainer as he understands the ins and outs of the tax system and he can properly assess your case upon initial consultation.

Like most non-violent crimes, perjury requires a complex system. It is often accompanied by forethought and action that is not like any other and prosecuting perjury often comes with hard evidence.
