White Collar Crime is a term which was coined and defined by criminologist Edwin Sutherland in 1939 as a rebellion against the belief that rulers and aristocrats could do no wrong. Sutherland defined it as, “a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation.” It has come to include crimes focused on financial gain which normally cause fiscal, as opposed to physical, harm. In spite of the specific definitions above, most “white collar crime” is often charged as theft. Normally, crimes which fall in this category can, at times, be charged as theft and their own specific charge without being barred by double jeopardy. Theft crimes can be charged in any punishment range, from a Misdemeanor Class C, all the way up to a 1st Degree Felony.
