WSLL Recommends: Banking Crimes: Fraud, Money Laundering and Embezzlement

Banking Crimes: Fraud, Money Laundering and Embezzlement explores issues with the investigation, prosecution, and defense of crimes against federally insured financial institutions. Author and private attorney John K. Villa specializes in civil and criminal corporate and financial services related litigation in Washington D.C. Using his expertise from years of practice, Banking Crimes is an attempt to collect and extract the significance of all the Federal court opinions interpreting the many criminal statutes passed by Congress in recent years. This work is comprised solely of the author's interpretation; federal prosecutors, defenders, and bankers would all benefit from this comprehensive examination of white collar crimes. The text includes primary excerpts of US Code and the Code of Federal Regulations. Appendices include relevant supplementary materials such as excerpts from the United States Attorneys' Manual and Financial Institution Fraud Federal Prosecution Manual.

Includes analysis of the following noteworthy federal statutes:
