The term “White Collar Crime” is often used in connection with state and federal offenses involving a theft of some form. These are generally sophisticated crimes involving the savvy use of technology, a simple manipulation or misuse of data, or a combination thereof.
While generally non-violent in nature, if you’re charged with a white collar crime you could be prosecuted in federal court which, if convicted, which could result in a prison term ranging from a few years to a few decades.
There’s Always A Way Out
During many trials involving fraud the main goal of the court is to secure restitution for the victim(s). Lengthy prison sentences can often be avoided by showing a lack of malicious intent on part of the accused, or by offering to make things right with the victims by way of restitution.
