White collar crimes can carry serious penalties

If you aren't a law student or big into the news, you may be unaware of the term 'white collar crime.' The phrase got its name from the type of people who typically are accused and commit these crimes. People with white collars, were traditionally people in management, so dubbed in the latter half of the 20th century. Meanwhile, blue collar workers were typically laborers.

Since while collar crimes cover crimes of embezzlement, wire fraud and even tax evasion, these activities are more accessible and susceptible to white collar workers than their blue collar counterpart. However, white collar crimes can carry heavy penalties for those who are convicted. While it isn't a violent crime, it still can carry criminal penalties including jail time. With conviction of a white collar crime, many will lose their job, or a specific license or positive reputation that they once had while working in that industry.

When accused of a white collar crime, do you seek a plea bargain or take the accusation to court?
