What Is a White Collar Crime?
White collar crimes refer to illegal, nonviolent acts committed for financial gain, typically by employees in a business or financial work environment. The term “white collar” refers to the white shirt collars traditionally worn by employees in these corporate settings.
White collar crimes can be prosecuted at the state or federal level and cases are often drawn out and complicated. Additionally, depending on the circumstances of your case and the alleged amount that was stolen, you may face either misdemeanor or felony charges.
Because of the complex nature of white collar crimes, it is important to work with a Sacramento County white collar crime defense lawyer with experience in these complex criminal cases.
