Areas of Law Description
Tim Webb is an experienced defense attorney who represents corporate and individual clients in all federal and state criminal investigations and prosecutions including:
- DUI / DWI
A DWI charge can happen to almost anyone with a driver’s license. Driving is legal and so is drinking. It is even legal to drink and drive as long as you are not “impaired.” The problem is that you need not actually feel “impaired” to be guilty of DWI. In fact, you could be driving perfectly. The prosecutors need only show that you were driving with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 or more. Since most people do not carry a device with them to tell us when their BAC has reached .08, it can be difficult to tell when it is illegal for them to drive.
- White Collar Crime
The term "white collar crime" has been credited to sociologist Edwin Sutherland who coined the phrase in a speech he gave in 1939. Today, the term "white collar crime" generally refers to non-violent crimes of deception that are motivated by profit. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, "white-collar offenses" are "non-violent illegal activities which principally involve traditional notions of deceit, deception, concealment, manipulation, breach of trust, subterfuge or illegal circumvention."
- Mail & Wire Fraud
A fraud typically occurs when someone is deceived in order to obtain money, property or services from them. Mail fraud or wire fraud is a serious charge with severe consequences. An indictment of mail or wire fraud will be based upon a significant and detailed investigation. It is important to discuss your rights, potential defenses and case strategies with an experienced white collar defense attorney as soon as you are indicted or if you believe that you may be under investigation. Early preparation by an experienced defense lawyer can increase your chances of a favorable outcome, including the possibility of charges being dropped.
- Mortgage Fraud
While there are a number of methods by which people commit mortgage fraud, each mortgage fraud scheme contains some type of "material misstatement, misrepresentation, or omission relating to the property or potential mortgage relied on by an underwriter or lender to fund, purchase or insure a loan." Mortgage fraud is a serious charge with severe consequences. An indictment of mortgage fraud will be based upon a significant and detailed investigation. It is important to discuss your rights, potential defenses and case strategies with an experienced white collar defense attorney as soon as you are indicted or if you believe that you may be under investigation.
- Theft & Embezzlement
Theft occurs when someone takes money or other property without right to that property and without the owner’s consent. Embezzlement is a form of theft that involves using a position of trust with an employer to commit a theft. A Theft by Swindle can basically be described as a situation where money or property is voluntarily handed over by the victim in reliance on a false statement made by the perpetrator of the theft. The seriousness of the charge depends on the value of the property taken, the identity of the victim and the type of property taken.
- Assault & Domestic Assault
Minnesota has five degrees of criminal assault. First degree assault is the most serious. Fifth degree is the least serious and does not require a physical injury or even physical contact. The mere threat of physical contact is can be enough to be charged with fifth degree assault. Typically, people think of domestic assault as physical abuse of a spouse. In Minnesota, however, domestic assault does not require any physical contact between the parties involved. Nor is domestic assault limited to assault of a current spouse. Someone convicted of domestic assault faces additional penalties and restrictions beyond those faced by someone convicted of assault.
- Drug Crimes
Minnesota has five degrees of drug crimes. A first degree drug crime is the most serious. Some of the current factors used to determine the seriousness of the crime include: the type of drug (e.g., methamphetamine, marijuana, etc.), the total weight or dosage of the drugs, the location (e.g., school or park zone). If you have been charged with a drug crime, speak to a knowledgeable defense lawyer as soon as possible. Early preparation by an experienced defense lawyer can increase your chances of a favorable outcome, including the possibility of charges being dropped.
- Sex Crimes, Internet Sex Crimes, Child Enticement & Child Pornography
Sex crimes cover a variety of conduct including Rape, Date Rape, Sexual Assault, Sexual Abuse, Sexual Harassment, Statutory Rape, Child Molestation, Prostitution, Internet Sex Crimes, Child Enticement and Possession of Child Pornography. If you are accused of a sex crime or you are being investigated for one you should speak to an attorney immediately to learn about your rights, your defense, and the legal system. Do not discuss the accusations with anyone other than your lawyer. Contacting an alleged victim can only make your situation worse and it can lead to further criminal charges such as witness tampering.
- Harassment & Privacy
Criminal harassment is committed when a person engages in conduct that causes someone to feel “frightened, threatened oppressed, persecuted, or intimidated ….” The crime of harassment can be charged as a gross misdemeanor or felony depending on the type of conduct, the age of the victim, the use of a weapon, and whether the harassment is based upon certain immutable characteristics such as race, sex, national origin, or disability. A victim of harassment or stalking can petition the court for a special order to prohibit the perpetrator of the harassment or stalking from a broad range of conduct, including conduct that would otherwise be legal in the absence of a special order.
- Vehicular Homicide
A charge of criminal vehicular homicide generally requires a prosecutor to prove one of three scenarios: (1) That you caused someone’s death by operating your vehicle in “grossly negligent” manner; or (2) That you caused someone’s death by operating your vehicle in a negligent or careless manner and that at the time of the accident you were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. (3) That you caused someone’s death by operating your vehicle in a negligent or careless manner and that you left the scene of the accident.
- Criminal Record Expungement
Criminal “Expungement” is the process of going to court to convince a judge to seal a criminal record. When a record is sealed, it does not show up in a criminal records search performed at the courthouse. An expungement does not erase your criminal courthouse record, but it prevents it from being viewed by the public. It is important to note that even when the court grants an expungement of a conviction, the records kept by some agencies, including the BCA, might not be sealed.
- Professional & Health Licensing
Mr. Webb has experience representing physicians, dentists, psychologists, nurses and other licensed health professionals before their respective Minnesota licensing boards in a variety of proceedings. Mr. Webb also has experience representing numerous other licensed professionals including lawyers, real estate brokers and agents, mortgage originators, insurance producers and agencies, and building contractors. If you have received a subpoena or have otherwise been contacted by your licensing board regarding a complaint filed against you, you should consult with an experienced lawyer.
