White Collar Crimes
Many white collar crimes, on both the state and federal levels, are felonies that carry mandatory prison sentences, as well as significant financial penalties and restitution. Professionals and other persons being charged with a white collar offense are further exposed to the social stigma to their work and professional reputation. A conviction for a white collar crime would most likely destroy their career all together.
Some white collar crimes don’t involve a person’s work or profession. Financial crimes outside a person’s employment are sometimes referred to as fraud. With fraud crimes, there is usually an allegation of financial loss, or obtaining funds illegally.
