Default The Defenses to White Collar Crime Charges

White-collar crimes are governed by the general principles of criminal liability. Each crime requires a bad act, criminal intent and causation. Many of the defenses to white-collar crime are the same as those that apply to other crimes, such as insanity, intoxication, incapacity (defendant was incapable of committing the crime), and duress (someone else caused the defendant to commit the crime)
A common defense to white-collar crimes is entrapment, a situation in which government personnel present the opportunity for the defendant to commit a criminal act that he or she otherwise would not have committed. The defendant argues that he or she would have had no tendency to commit the crime without government enticement. A judge will look at the situation through the defendantís eyes in deciding whether the defendant was entrapped. To succeed on an entrapment defense, the defendant must prove that the government induced him or her to commit the crime and that he or she had no predisposition to committing the crime.
