White Collar Crimes in Florida
There is no specific legal description of what is implied by the word white collar crime. In general, it is used to label non-violent crimes committed by business people and elected officials as a catch-all word. The following are criminal acts that generally fall under the white collar crime umbrella:
- Fraud: Fraud is any dishonest act which causes financial or personal gain to harm to others. It may include identity theft, fraud in insurance, cyber crimes, and a range of other crimes.
- Misuse of Funds: Those who misuse funds in their trust can be charged with embezzlement. This typically impacts business leaders, bureaucrats, and elected officials.
- Evading Tax: Individuals illegally avoiding their tax liabilities can face a charge of tax evasion. It is important to note the distinction between illegal tax evasion and legal tax minimization in these cases.
- Money Laundering: These charges involve the concealment of illegally obtained money through businesses and fraudulent bank accounts.
These charges can carry serious penalties, including lengthy prison sentences, large fines, or both.
