Handling White-Collar Crime Cases in West Virginia

Typical white-collar crimes include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Embezzlement: Illegally redirecting funds you’re responsible for overseeing.
  • Fraud: Using deception for personal or financial benefit against individuals, groups, businesses, or government entities.
  • Cybercrime: Employing internet technology to perform fraudulent acts.
  • Identity Theft: Unlawfully utilizing another individual’s personal data, usually for monetary gain.
  • Insider Trading: Making stock transactions based on confidential, important information.
  • Petty Cash Theft: Appropriating small sums from a company’s fund for minor expenditures.
  • Money Laundering: Making illicit money appear legitimate through complex financial maneuvers.
  • Ponzi Schemes: Operating an investment scam that pays returns to earlier investors using new investor’s funds, falsely promising low risk and high returns.

In West Virginia, numerous white-collar crimes fall under felony classification, incurring more stringent consequences compared to misdemeanors. These sanctions can entail substantial fines, victim repayment, probationary periods, or imprisonment, contingent on the severity and nature of the offense.

Federal Prosecution of Financial Crimes

Federally, white-collar crimes face charges under legislation such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act for corporate fraud, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act for cybercrimes, and the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act for identity misuse. Federal repercussions often exceed those at the state level, potentially resulting in extended incarceration and larger financial penalties.

The FBI, a key federal agency, specializes in the investigation and prosecution of white-collar crimes. It dedicates significant resources and time, sometimes years, to the meticulous examination of suspected fraudulent activities and financial crimes, working through a specialized wing focused on criminal financial intelligence and resolution. Collaborating closely with other organizations and regulatory authorities, the FBI is instrumental in identifying and bringing financial criminals to justice.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Former Client

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
