Why Is Bank Fraud Prosecuted So Harshly?

In the early 2000s, following a number of high profile white-collar crime cases, public outcry about the lax investigation and sentencing afforded the wealthy perpetrators of extreme financial crimes led to changes in federal business regulations and state and federal criminal laws.

Since then, the criminal justice system has responded to the pressure by pursuing charges of crimes like bank fraud very aggressively with little regard for variations in the severity of the offense, the amount of money illegally obtained, or the circumstances of the crime. In response to a demand from the public that crimes involving the theft of billions of dollars from sources like employee pensions be taken seriously, they began cracking down hard on any and all individuals suspected of financial crimes.

Don’t let them make an example of you. Trust Basmadjian Law Group to fight for you.
