White collar crimes like fraud and embezzlement involve deceit and concealment, usually for some financial benefit. While white collar crimes do not involve physical violence, these crimes are still treated very seriously under both Illinois and federal law. Many white collar or financial crimes are felonies, and carry punishments of significant jail time and heavy fines and financial penalties.
If you are charged with any type of white collar crime, there is another very significant danger: the risk of losing your livelihood and reputation. If you are convicted of a white collar crime, even if you do not spend time in jail, there is a great chance you will lose your job, and a professional license if you have one. As for future employment, not many employers are willing to take a chance on hiring someone with a conviction for a crime involving dishonesty. A conviction of a white collar crime can ruin your prospects, your relationships, and your reputation.
