Consequences of White Collar Crime in California
White collar crimes are generally financial crimes where an individual or group uses deception to take advantage of victims for their own personal monetary gain. Many of these crimes are charged as felonies and thus carry harsher penalties than misdemeanors in terms of incarceration, fines, restitution, and probation.
Examples of white collar crimes include:
- Identity theft
- Credit card fraud
- Insurance fraud, such as Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Health care fraud
- Mail fraud
- Tax fraud
- Investment scams
- Ponzi schemes
- Securities fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Workers’ compensation fraud
- Public corruption
Those offenses that violate federal law or cross interstate lines may be investigated and prosecuted by federal agencies. In general, federal crimes often involve more aggressive prosecution and penalties than state crimes. In any of these crimes, however, you may be facing a lengthy prison term. Your reputation and future employability will also suffer from any conviction of a white collar crime.
