It is a common misconception that individuals convicted of white collar crimes serve prison terms in jails that have "country-club" settings. The truth is far different —minimum-security facilities are not pleasant homes, and those sentenced to longer prison terms usually go to higher-security prisons. To have the best chance at avoiding or minimizing a prison sentence, contact an experienced white collar criminal defense attorney immediately.
