What You Should Know About Corporate (White Collar) Crime
When we think of dangerous crimes, we typically think of street crime: muggings, shootings, robberies, assaults, and so on. However, it is actually nonviolent corporate, AKA white collar, crime that inflicts more damage on society than all the violent street crime combined.
White collar crime includes offenses like fraud (healthcare, credit card, bank, immigration, mortgage, etc.), money laundering, practicing or contracting without a license, forgery, tax evasion, employee theft, and embezzlement.
Fraudulent crimes are among some of the most expensive in The United States. Healthcare fraud alone costs Americans between $100 and $400 billion every year and savings and loan fraud costs anywhere between $300 and $500 billion.
Corporate crime can also be violent, even though you might not expect it. An estimated 56,000 Americans die every year on the job from occupational diseases and tens of thousands of Americans die due to pollution, food contamination, hazardous products, and medical malpractice.
What we can gather from these staggering statistics is this: Corporate crime is tremendously serious and therefore needs to be handled by an experienced criminal attorney like the one at Stroleny Law, P.A.
Due to the detrimental nature of white collar crimes, those who are convicted as white collar criminals are in desperate need of high-quality, proactive legal counsel, just like someone who is convicted of murder or theft. If you’re involved in white collar crime, you should remain silent until you’ve received counseling from your criminal defense attorneys. White collar crimes can lead to imprisonment charges of five years or more, depending on the crime.
