Q & A With Nebraska Federal Attorney Nick Oberheiden

What is White Collar Crime?


The term “white collar crime” describes a wide scope of financial offenses. These offenses range from corporate fraud to extortion to embezzlement to money laundering, not to mention investment fraud and countless others. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has a special team of agents assigned to white collar crimes. These agents work closely with the prosecutors in the White Collar Crime division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. In summary, if you face allegations of white collar crime, you are up against investigators and lawyers who have spent their lives investigating and prosecuting these crimes. You need a Nebraska federal criminal defense attorney of that same caliber.

Why Do Prosecutors Like to Claim a Federal Conspiracy?


18 U.S.C. 371 is a federal statute that gives federal prosecutors significant leeway charging multiple defendants in a single case. Besides the fact that doing so is a more economic way to prosecute several people simultaneously in one indictment, prosecutors like the fact that these co-defendants or co-conspirators don’t have to have close ties. Sufficient is that everyone provided some contribution to the overall success of the alleged criminal scheme. For example, in a federal healthcare kickback case, prosecutors may charge a pharmacist, a physician, and a marketer in the same case claiming that the kickback occurred within this triangle—even if, for example, the physician and the pharmacist may have never talked to each other.

  • Conspiracy to Commit Medicare Fraud (18 U.S.C. 1347; 18 U.S.C. 371)

Do Judges in Nebraska Follow the Federal Sentencing Guidelines?


Federal judges in Nebraska are not bound by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. Nonetheless, in the interest of uniform standards, judges in Omaha and Lincoln do consider the recommendations presented to them by the U.S. Probation Office. In federal cases, a U.S. probation officer will calculate a sentencing range based on the defendant’s offense, the damage caused, prior criminal history, and many other factors, and then recommend this calculated range to the presiding sentencing judge.

What Do Nebraska FBI Agents Investigate?


The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) utilizes agents and special agents in Nebraska to investigate federal crimes. While there are many other federal law enforcement agencies specialized in specific offenses (e.g. the U.S. Secret Service investigates currency offenses, the DEA investigates drug offenses, the HHS-OIG investigates healthcare fraud), virtually all federal cases involve the Justice Department’s main enforcement agency, the FBI, in some capacity.

What Should I Do if I’m Indicted?


The first thing you should do if you are indicted is to contact a highly experiencedNebraska federal criminal defense attorney. If you’ve been indicted, that means that the government has already made its case against you to a grand jury, which believed there was probable cause to believe you committed the crime. Of course, however, this does not mean you are guilty of the offense. There are many effective defenses to federal criminal charges, and discussing your case with an accredited Nebraska federal criminal defense attorney is the first step in assessing the government’s case and identifying any weaknesses.
