Just because a crime doesn’t involve violence, that doesn’t mean the penalties will be any less severe.
If you commit a white collar crime – a nonviolent, financially motivated crime such as fraud, embezzlement, bribery, money laundering, forgery, and others – you could be punished with a number of consequences, including:
Expensive fines as high as $1 million for certain offenses such as bank fraud
Lengthy prison sentences
Restitution – paying back the money you appropriated for yourself
