White Collar Crime Definition & Impact
The criminal justice system typically defines a white collar crime as one that does not involve violence but instead uses professional deception to extort or coerce unsuspecting victims or to gain finances illegitimately.
Commonly cited types of white collar crimes including financial theft and:
- Mail fraud
- Identity theft
- Money laundering
If the extent of a white collar crime is suspected to be great, it is likely that federal investigators will be brought in to assist the prosecution. In turn, federal charges can spike the severity of sentencing upon conviction.
Company executives found to have engaged in white collar crimes can be:
- Imprisoned for years
- Charged hundreds of thousands in fines
- Lose any related professional licenses
Beyond the criminal aspects of punishment, a corporation’s reputation and good name can be entirely destroyed by a white collar conviction, making it impossible for that company to exist any longer, even after sentencing requirements are met. For this reason and many more, it is paramount that a strong defense is gathered as soon as possible.
Stay Cool While the Heat is On
Many prosecutors and investigators rely heavily on defendants and suspects cracking under the pressure and admitting to wrongdoing, even if they had actually never broken the law.
We realize that you can choose any number of attorneys to assist you with your white collar crime case. We encourage you to perform a thorough search and assess the important aspects of an attorney before you make an executive choice.
