Types of Penalties Involved in White Collar Crimes Cases

The extent of the penalties you face for a white collar crime depends on the amount of financial assets that were comprised or stolen in the process. As white collar crimes involve wealth, trade secrets, or business matters and are not violent in nature, you may assume the penalties are lighter. However, the consequences for these offenses can be very severe.

The penalties will depend on the level of offense you are convicted of:
  • State jail felony: Between 180 days and two years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines
  • Third degree felony: Between 2 and 20 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines
  • Second degree felony: Between 2 and 20 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines
  • First Degree Felony: Between five and 99 years (life) in prison and up to $10,000 in fines

For misdemeanor offenses, the penalties will be less severe but can still be life-altering and career-ending for offenders, especially in the business world. Regardless of the charges you are facing, the sooner you retain counsel, the sooner you can begin to craft a strong and effective defense.
