Although white collar crime is non-violent and deals with money, the effects can be truly damaging. After the financial collapse in 2008, there have been many reports of fraud and investment schemes.
Two California residents were convicted last month of theft from an elder by a caretaker, and were sentenced to serve prison terms of over six years and five years, respectively. The couple took over $500,000 from 80-year-old Rose Souza, qualifying for white collar crime, according to The Stockton Record.
