White Collar Crimes
"White collar crime" is a term describing generally non-violent fraud for financial gain. Although non-violent the seriousness of the charge is not lessened. A white collar criminal conviction has the same penalties as any many other felony charges, including substantial fines, jail time, business forfeiture, restitution and a permanent criminal record.

- Counterfeiting / consumer goods
- Identity / credit card theft
- Tax evasion
