Generally, white-collar crimes are non-violent offenses committed for financial gain. Typically occurring in businesses, these crimes often involve deceit to defraud another person and deprive them of property or money. Although a person may not be physically injured when victim to a white-collar crime, that does not mean that these offenses are not taken seriously. Often large agencies, such as the FBI or IRS, investigate such matters for months to develop a strong case against the accused. Additionally, the prosecution will work hard to obtain a conviction and seek maximum penalties.
