What is Considered White-Collar Crime?

White-collar crime describes a class and type of offense rather than referring to a specific criminal act. Generally crimes of this type are considered to be schemes committed through fraud or dishonesty for financial gain. Depending on the particular offense, white-collar crimes can be charged as a state crime, a federal crime or both. Notable white-collar crimes include:

  • Securities and Commodities Fraud – Schemes that float rumors or false information with the intent of causing investors to buy or sell stocks are prohibited. Further it is unlawful to make misrepresentations regarding a company’s financials. Also included under this umbrella are insider trading, stock manipulation, accountant fraud and front-running.
  • Money Laundering – Money laundering involves plot or schemes by which ill-gotten gains are “laundered” or processed so that they appear to be the profits of a legitimate business. Since 1986, those charged with money laundering can face criminal sanctions.
  • Insurance Fraud – Any act to fraudulently obtain a payment or benefit from an insurance company can be considered insurance fraud. Insurance fraud can involve auto insurance, healthcare, workers’ compensation, SSI or SSD benefits, Medicare or Medicaid, or unemployment insurance.
  • Mail, Wire Fraud – Since 1872 it has been a federal crime to intend to advance a scheme to defraud another of money or property through the mail or by electronic transmission. A prison sentence of up to 30 years and a fine not exceeding $1 million dollars can apply. Subsequent laws have prohibited the use of the Internet for schemes and the unauthorized acces to and use of computer systems.
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act – The FCPA makes bribes to foreign officials for the purposes of obtaining business unlawful. It also institutes accounting requirements for companies with securities listed in the United States. While one may not make payments to obtain payments, payments to expedite work may be permitted.
  • Federal RICO Charges – Often referred to as racketeering, RICO provides both criminal penalties and civil causes of action. Its focus is on punishing the leader of an enterprise or operation for things that they ordered others to do. RICO charges can be particularly daunting because the prosecutor may move for a pre-trial temporary injunction to freeze the defendant’s assets.

While this list is not comprehensive, it addresses a broad-array of the white-collar crime charges an experienced Young, Marr and Associates attorney can handle.
