Insider trading is a white collar crime that can land you in federal prison.
If you have been arrested on charges that include insider trading, you need to hire a criminal defense attorney who is well-versed in defending white collar crimes and who is able to try cases on the federal level.
This is a serious crime and you need to hire a lawyer immediately after your arrest. Do not talk to authorities about your case.
Instead, call criminal defense attorney Michael Anzalone and have him by your side when you talk to detectives or investigators.What is Insider Trading?
This is a practice that is highly illegal in New Hampshire and across the country. It involves the practice of trading on the U.S. Stock Exchange to your own advantage because you have been provided with confidential information.
Maybe someone you know slipped you some information. Maybe you obtained that information through other illegal means. But if you’ve been arrested, there is a strong suspicion that you have been illegally trading on the stock exchange.
This is a federal crime and the stakes are high. This kind of practice simply is not tolerated. Famous people including Martha Stewart have been convicted and sent to prison for doing this kind of crime.
An insider has some kind of access to valuable confidential information about a corporation. You can even be charged if it’s learned that you tipped off friends or even family members to this kind of confidential information that you have access to.
If you sell that information or use it illegally in some other way, you can be charged. And federal prosecutors don’t tread lightly on this issue. They will be building a strong case against your from even before you were arrested.
So you need the kind of law firm that can fight back and help you get the best possible outcome.
As your criminal defenses lawyer, Michael Anzalone will look into the evidence and try to determine how strong of a case has been built by prosecutors. In some cases, it may be best for you to accept a plea arrangement with prosecutors that could result in a suspended sentence or possibly even probation in exchange for pleading guilty to insider trading charges.
