Colorado Springs White Collar Crime Attorney
Per the FBI, white collar crime is defined as "lying, cheating, and stealing." Essentially, white collar crimes are those that are nonviolent and motivated by finances—hence "white collar." These are commonly committed by both business and government professionals and include everything from fraud to forgery to money laundering. The fact that it is nonviolent does not mean it is a minor crime—the prosecution takes these crimes seriously. Depending on the type of crime, penalties can be severe.

Are White Collar Crimes State or Federal Crimes?
The short answer: It depends.
While white collar crimes are often federal crimes, that does not mean they are always federal crimes. In some cases, they may be prosecuted on the state level. However, because white collar crimes can be so complex and because they can often cross state lines, they frequently end up on the federal level.
