White collar crime includes a variety of nonviolent crimes usually committed in commercial situations for financial gain by the use of sophisticated means to conceal their activities, usually through a series of complex transactions. White collar crimes can be prosecuted in state or federal courts. The most common white collar crime offenses include:
The penalties for white-collar offenses include fines, home detention, community confinement, paying the cost of prosecution, forfeitures, restitution, supervised release, and imprisonment. However, sanctions can be lessened if the defendant takes responsibility for the crime and assists the authorities in their investigation. Any defenses available to non-white-collar defendants in criminal court are also available to those accused of white-collar crimes.
