White collar crime victims may be involved in the act unknowingly

White collar crimes may not seem like they hurt anyone, but even though they're not violent, they can be devastating. In white collar crimes, individuals may steal money from others, hurting their financial outlook for many years to come, if not for the rest of their lives. Sadly, many people who are victimized by white collar crimes do not recover.

Tax evasion: Protect yourself against unfair penalties

White collar crimes are aptly named, as they're generally committed by people who do not do manual labor. These individuals, who could wear white-collared shirts without risking getting them dirty, often work with finances and may be chief executive officers (CEOs) or business executives.

The penalties for white collar crimes may come as a shock

A white collar crime is one that doesn't necessarily have a violent or physical nature. However, a white collar crime can still result in serious federal penalties. Did you know that penalties for federal crimes generally start with at least a year in prison upon conviction? For cases of fraud, insider trading and embezzlement, you could face decades behind bars.

3 examples of federal crimes

An accused person could face either state or federal charges when it comes to criminal allegations. In most situations, criminal allegations will fall under the jurisdiction of the state court wherever the crime occurred. However, in other cases, the federal court system will claim jurisdiction over trying and deciding the matter.
