Types of White Collar Crimes & Penalties in Virginia

The phrase “white collar crime” is a catch-all term for a variety of crimes generally committed in a business or professional environment by executives, managers, entrepreneurs, and the like. These are crimes committed through the use of deception and fraud for financial gain. As such, they bring a very negative stigma to anyone associated with them.

Examples of white collar crimes include:

  • Identity theft - Up to $100k in fines and up to 10 years in prison
  • Bank fraud - Up to $1 million in fines and up to 30 years in prison
  • Forgery - Up to $100k in fines and up to 10 years in prison
  • Money laundering - Up to $500k in fines and up to 40 years in prison
  • Bribery - Up to $100k in fines and up to 10 years in prison
  • Extortion - Up to $2.5k in fines and up to 10 years in prison
  • Perjury - Up to $2.5k in fines and up to 10 years in prison
  • Embezzlement - Up to $2.5k in fines, up to 20 years in prison, & victim restitution

Even though they are nonviolent offenses, a conviction for a white collar crime can carry an array of penalties as well as collateral damage to your finances and reputation. Penalties can include jail or prison time, fines, probation, and restitution. The result of a conviction will be a permanent criminal record that can make future opportunities difficult.
