White Collar Crime - An Overview
Crimes that do not involve physical violence, and that relate largely to financial matters, are often called "white collar crimes." White collar crimes involve most of the same legal principles as do other crimes, and people charged with white collar crimes have the same rights and protections as defendants accused of other crimes.

The possible penalties include fines, prison sentences, and criminal forfeiture.
