White Collar Crimes are More Complex
A white collar crime is often investigated and enforced by special law enforcement officials. These can include:
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI)
- Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
- Justice Department
These cases can be tried in federal and state courts depending on the severity of the case. These agencies have vast resources to prosecute those believed to be guilty. They spend months and even years building their cases against those they believe have committed white collar crimes.
