Your Defense Starts Now -- Call Our Financial Crimes Defense Attorney in
Financial crimes defense is a highly technical area which typically entails
criminal violations of Connecticut state law, the United States Code,
or the Internal Revenue Code. The consequences of a misdemeanor or felony
conviction for such crimes are devastating -- they may potentially include
large fines, lengthy prison time, the ability to become employed in a
certain profession, and a permanent criminal record.
Help is here. Attorney Roderick D. Woods has achieved exceptional results
in the defense of clients charged with financial crimes, including:
United States of America v. Torres (3:15-cr-00216 JCH): Client, over the course of a six-year period, failed
to file federal income tax returns, structured bank deposits, and did
not report $1.27 million dollars of income to the IRS. Client was charged
in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut with
felony attempted tax evasion and was facing a statutory maximum of five
years in prison along with a $250,000 fine. Attorney Woods successfully
argued for a non-Guidelines sentence and client received a sentence of
three months in prison and no fine.
State of Connecticut v. S. S.: Client failed, for a number of years, to remit approximately $170,000
of sales tax to the State of Connecticut Department of Revenue Services.
Client was charged with four misdemeanor counts of failure to remit sales
tax and was facing a maximum of four years in prison, as well as a sizeable
fine. Attorney Woods aggressively contested the charges, and was able
to negotiate a
nolle prosequi (dismissal under Connecticut law) of all four misdemeanor charges.
