The term “criminal prosecution” brings to mind popular law enforcement television shows that highlight chasing drug runners, rapists and murderers. Few are aware of how prevalent white collar crimes can be, especially in a large metropolitan area like Atlanta, Georgia, and the surrounding environs, such as Roswell.
What are White Collar Crimes?
The term “white collar” denotes management positions that do not get their hands physically dirty. Such workers wear “white collar” shirts and ties to work; this is different from “blue collar” workers who often wear a work uniform and perform more manual or menial tasks. White collar crimes, then, are involving generally non-violent and financial-related wrongdoing. Some examples include:
- Tax evasion/fraud
- Internet scams
- Real estate scams
- Insider stock trading
- Securities fraud
- Insurance fraud
Those charged with these crimes have access to records and financial data that “blue collar” workers do not enjoy. These crimes can involve businesses as well as individuals. White collar crimes can often bring even more serious consequences than some violent crimes due to their far-reaching consequences.
