Penalties for Insider Trading in Florida

There are many different issues that could be investigated in your case if you have been charged with this crime, and there are various penalties you will face for a conviction. The penalties for conviction of a white collar crime have reportedly gone up, on average, from 18 months to 30 months over the past decade.

If you are charged with crimes such as securities fraud, then you could face a prison sentence as harsh as 20 years, combined with a fine of up to $5,000,000. If you are under investigation, or if you have been charged with this crime, then you need skilled representation on your side. Even facing investigation of illegal actions can cause a great deal of hardship, your reputation could be tarnished, you could suffer from embarrassment, and many other effects.

If you are under investigation for insider trading, then it is important to know the areas that the authorities will investigate:

  • When you traded, the specific dates and times
  • How much you invested, as compared to your net worth as well as previous investments of similar kinds
  • Who you know that has a relationship with the company
  • Your private, business, and home phone records
  • Any electronic correspondence such as emails and text messages
  • Your past trading history and trends to evaluate if this instance matches a pattern
  • Your bank records to discover any payments made to private individuals who could have provided you with information
  • Calendars to determine who you may have met with and when
  • Your brokerage account statements
