Kenton Sands is a former federal prosecutor who holds a law degree from Harvard Law School and Master of Laws in Taxation from New York University Law School. He has maintained an active white collar criminal defense and criminal tax defense practice in the Central Florida area for over 16 years.
White Collar Criminal Defense
Mr. Sands has represented individuals and corporations in a wide range of white collar investigations and prosecutions involving such areas as mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, securities fraud, money laundering, currency structuring, telemarketing fraud, criminal copyright infringement and internet cybercrimes. On the federal level, these offenses are typically prosecuted by the United States Attorney's Office in coordination with various federal law enforcement and regulatory agencies. The principal federal law enforcement agency with jurisdiction over a broad array of white collar crimes is the Federal Bureau of Investigation. If you are the subject or target of a white collar criminal investigation and have not already retained counsel, you should consult with an attorney immediately in order to protect your rights.
Criminal Tax Defense
Mr. Sands has represented individuals and corporations in state and federal criminal tax prosecutions involving income taxes, employment taxes and state sales taxes. Federal criminal tax evasion cases are investigated by the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service and are prosecuted by the United States Attorney's Office or the Tax Division of the Department of Justice. Florida state sales tax cases are investigated by the Florida Department of Revenue and are prosecuted by the State Attorney or by the Office of the Statewide Prosecutor. The objective of these investigations is not to collect tax, but to seek criminal convictions and potential incarceration of tax evaders. If you are the subject or target of a criminal tax evasion investigation and have not already retained counsel, you should consult with an attorney immediately in order to protect your rights.
