What Are White-Collar Crimes?

White-collar crimes are non-violent, financially motivated crimes. The FBI defines them as “illegal acts which are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and which are not dependent upon the application or threat of physical force or violence.” Usually, white-collar crimes are carried out by business professionals or a network of business professionals looking to gain material wealth.

Are White-Collar Crimes Federal or State Crimes?

Is white-collar crime a federal crime? Not always. Historically, white-collar crimes have been investigated and prosecuted solely by the federal government, but the Texas Attorney General and District Attorney now actively prosecute white-collar cases that take place in Texas alongside the FBI and SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission).

Now, it is much more common for someone accused of serious white-collar crime in Texas to be tried in both state and federal courts.

These white-collar crime examples are not exhaustive but you can bet that your charge will be charged as a federal crime if it crossed state lines or involved defrauding another institution. If you are arrested for credit card fraud or money laundering in Texas, for instance, and the money allegedly defrauded or laundered never crossed state lines, you will likely be charged within the state system.

Those accused of federal white-collar crimes often find themselves dealing with the SEC and the FBI, both of which commit large task forces to the monitoring and investigation of federal financial crimes. How does the FBI combat white-collar crime? The FBI works with government resources and private organizations to investigate and build cases against those who commit various financial crimes.
