Penalties for extortion range from moderate to severe. Some extortion crimes are charged as misdemeanors and others are charged as felonies depending on the situation at hand. If convicted of extortion, a defendant could be sentenced to complete a lengthy prison sentence or pay large fines. The government does not take extortion lightly, and defendants charged with this type of white collar crime will need to secure top notch representation before they appear in court.
