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.

Some of the most common white collar offenses include:

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 Chicago lawyer as soon as possible.

If convicted, you could face the following punishments:

  • Steep Fines
  • Probation
  • Mandatory Community Service
  • Restitution
  • Property Forfeiture
  • Time in Prison
