Houston White Collar Crime Lawyer

Understanding Your White Collar Charges in TX

The term "white collar crime" was first coined back in 1939 by Edwin Sutherland who described this category of crime as one that is committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his or her occupation. Today, the landscape for white collar criminals has changed, for it is no longer limited to white collar professionals.

While white collar crimes can certainly be committed by managers, stockbrokers, CEOs and corporate officers, they can also be committed by everyday people from the privacy of their own home. For this reason, white collar crime is more accurately defined as a financially motivated, nonviolent crime that is committed for the purpose of illegal financial gain.

What is a White Collar Crime?

White collar crime is similar to corporate crime, as it is often committed by white collar employees who have the knowledge, insight and opportunity to commit crimes like fraud, bribery, insider trading, embezzlement, money laundering or forgery. However, white collar crimes also involve illegal activities that can be committed by anyone.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation loosely defines white collar crime as lying, cheating and stealing. The FBI says the term is now synonymous with a full range of fraudulent crimes that are often committed by businesses and professionals alike. With today's computer technology, fraud scams are more sophisticated than ever before, so the FBI is dedicated to using its skills to track down the perpetrators and to stop scams dead in their tracks.

Common White Collar Crimes

Some of the common forms of white collar crime include, but are not limited to:

Punishment for White Collar Crimes

In the United States, the penalties for white collar crimes may involve imprisonment, fines, victim restitution, community service, probation, the loss of a professional license and other forms of alternative punishment.
