What is a “white collar” crime?

The term “white collar crime” is used to refer to nonviolent, financially motivated crimes that professionals may be accused of, including fraud, embezzlement, identity theft and internet crimes. White collar crimes may be either federal or state crimes.

White collar crimes are usually nonviolent, and people accused of such offenses may have significant resources and a professional reputation to protect. There may be a perception that white collar defendants are treated differently by the court system, but penalties can be severe, and it is important to have the best defense possible.
