Examples Of White-collar Crimes
White-collar crimes are crimes that are typically committed by what the world has labeled as white-collar professionals. That being said, anyone from any walk of life and any career path can be charged with a white-collar crime.
Common characteristics white collar crimes share include:
- There’s usually a financial angle
- There generally isn’t any violence
- The person charged with the crime usually has a solid connection with their community.
Common examples of white-collar crimes include:
- Ponzi schemes
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Campaign fraud
Because white-collar crimes rarely have an element of violence, it’s rare for a judge to deny bail, though they will take a close look at how closely you’re connected to the community and your criminal history.
