White Collar Crime

White collar crimes are non-violent crimes committed by corporations or individuals in the course of their business activities. They are typically prosecuted on the federal level. White collar crimes include: bribery, unfair competition, tax evasion, embezzlement, fraud, corruption, organized crime, racketeering, theft, forgery, insider trading, identity theft, stock manipulation, etc. Traditionally those suspected of white collar crime were rarely investigated and/or prosecuted, if at all. Individuals convicted of white collar crime were also rarely subjected to jail or prison sentences or any meaningful sanctions. However, because of the public's awareness of the significant social and economic cost of corruption in business and government. State and federal law enforcement have made the prosecution of white collar crime a top priority.
