White-Collar Crime: What is It?
Our nation's prison system is filled with people who are serving time for a first-time offense. Those who are convicted of white-collar crimes frequently argue that they did not know their behavior could lead to a government investigation, much less a charge for a white-collar crime. In this course, we will help participants understand different types of white-collar crime. We will explain how decisions people make today can lead to potential problems with law enforcement-and potentially, a journey through federal prison.
