About White Collar Crimes in Illinois
White collar crimes are classified as nonviolent offenses in the state
of Illinois. The Illinois State Statute for White Collar Crime (720 ILCS
5/33 et seq.) names specific white collar crimes as well as their defining
elements including deceit or concealment to obtain some benefit or advantage.
These crimes typically involve fraud, cheating, or
theft related to business or financial matters. The greater the amount of money
or assets stolen, the greater the possible penalties including jail or
prison time, restitution, heavy fines, a permanent criminal record, and more.

Defense Strategies and Protecting Yourself
Unlike other criminal cases, an individual charged with a white collar
crime may know that he or she is being investigated weeks or months in
advance. This forewarning provides the individual with enough time to
seek legal counsel and appropriately prepare themselves. If you are being
investigated, it is in your best interest to retain representation from
a Chicagolawyer as soon as possible.
If convicted, you could face the following punishments:
- Steep Fines
- Mandatory Community Service
- Property Forfeiture
- Time in Prison
