If your case does go to trial there are two strong potential defenses commonly used for white collar cases:
- Entrapment – It is possible that the government agents or law enforcement coerced you into performing the criminal act, that without their cooperation and encouragement you never would have done the criminal act they are accusing you of doing;
- Lack of Intent – Maybe your actions were criminal actions, but it’s possible that you were unaware of the criminal nature of your actions and you had no intention of committing the crime;
- Duress – Perhaps another person forced you to commit the crime, accompanied with threats of harm to you or a loved one;
- Incapacity – Possibly you weren’t physically or mentally capable of doing those criminal acts that you are accused of performing;
- Intoxication – since a person under the influence of alcohol or other substancesmay be incapable of acting reasonably, it may be possible to argue that you were not able to have the intent to commit a crime.
