White Collar Crimes & Penalties
White collar crimes are generally nonviolent offenses committed by individuals in a position of trust or authority, such as financial counselors, investment professionals, accountants, executives, public servants, and more. These are financial crimes in which fraud, deception, theft, and other forms of misrepresentation are used to take advantage of others.
Examples of white collar crimes include:
- Identity theft
- Bank and wire fraud
- Investment scams
- Securities fraud
- Health care fraud
- Welfare fraud
- Medicare fraud
- Money laundering
- Insurance fraud
- Tax evasion
- Public corruption
These crimes may be subject to lengthy investigations by both state and federal agencies; such investigations can go on for months or even years as these agencies seek to gather and document sufficient evidence. Thus, you may be prosecuted in either a state or federal court. Federal charges are generally more serious with more severe penalties.
Penalties will revolve around the specific crimes involved, your level of involvement, and the number of victims and amount of financial gain that occurred. These penalties can include jail or prison sentences, fines, restitution, forfeiture of assets, and lengthy probation periods.
