Being charged with a white-collar crime can ruin your reputation and your career. My name is R. Curtis Murtha, PA, and I'm a defense attorney serving the Clearwater, FL community. I have more than 20 years of legal experience defending clients who have been charged with white-collar crimes.
Fraud & Theft related cases can have a significant impact on your employment. Businesses and employers usually conduct background checks. Of all criminal offenses, fraud/theft offenses can have the most negative impact. If you are arrested for fraud or theft related offense it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Economic crimes usually involve restitution. Restitution typically involves money that is due to the victim in a case directly related to the alleged criminal conduct. A person's ability to pay restitution is typically determined by the Court, but it can have a significant impact when it comes to sentencing. It is important to hire a law firm experienced with negotiating restitution matters with the State Attorney's Office and the Court.
