What Is White Collar Crime?

“White collar crime” is not an official legal term, so its definition is somewhat vague. In general, white collar crime is a non-violent offense committed by a professional or a public servant. It typically involves some form of theft or fraud. Common examples are bribery, embezzlement, and violations of corporate or environmental law.

White collar crimes often involve large amounts of money, which means that the penalties can be very strict. If you have been accused of one of these crimes, you need aggressive legal defense. To learn more, contact Cape Cod criminal defense attorney James Powderly today at 508-343-0676.
