What Is a White-Collar Crime?
In California, a white-collar crime is a non-violent offense committed to obtain money or some financial gain. A white-collar crime may involve deceit, concealment, or an abuse of trust. Some white-collar crimes are felonies, while others are misdemeanors.
White-collar crimes often involve executives and professionals. White-collar crimes include but are not limited to:
- Insurance fraud;
- Money laundering; and
- Computer crimes.
Penalties for White-Collar Crimes in California
White-collar crimes in California can be misdemeanors or felonies. A misdemeanor white-collar crime is punishable by county jail time of up to one year and as much as a $1,000 fine. A white-collar felony is punishable by state prison time of at least one year and up to a $10,000 fine.
There are aggravated white-collar crimes. These can add an additional two to five years to an offender’s prison sentence if he or she has two prior white-collar convictions involving embezzlement or fraud and the crime meets a certain monetary threshold.
Restitution is often ordered in a white-collar crime as well. This is a payment to the victim as part of an offender’s punishment. Judges may require restitution paid to a victim to account for any financial setbacks through the course of the crime.
A judge may also order forfeiture, which is the seizure of an offender’s personal property by law enforcement officers. This is likely to happen if the property was part of a crime or obtained as a result of a crime.
