White collar crimes are typically defined by their financially-driven nature and are commonly referred to as “economic crimes”. White collar crimes may include fraud or any number of theft-related charges. Regardless of the actual charge, white collar crimes indicate that the accused individual acted with the intent to take money or property from the rightful owner. These crimes are nonviolent, but because of the financial-nature of them, they oftentimes cause a lot damage and hardship. Because of this, white collar crimes are severely punishable and are looked down upon by the legal system.
