ll crime can generally be divided into two categories: blue-collar crime and white-collar crime. Usually, when you divide something so broad into only two categories, the categories are vague, with mild differences. This is not true with the distinction between blue-collar crime and white-collar crime, and the attorneys at Scartelli Olszewski P.C. explain why.
Blue-collar crime is any criminal activity that is comitted against one or a few individual people or entities. This means you can only commit blue-collar crimes against other people or physical locations you can enter. You can’t commit a blue-collar crime against an entire company or country. Examples of blue-collar crime include but are not limited to:
Some white-collar crimes are similar to these blue-collar crimes, and there are white-collar crimes that can lead to blue-collar crimes. If you are confused as to how a specific crime is classified, a criminal defense attorney from Scartelli Olszewski, P.C. can explain.
White-collar crime is any crime that is against society. This means that the crime targets large entities, including corporations, governments, social societies, and non-profit organizations as a whole, rather than just individual representatives or locations. This larger scale can lead to multiple individuals, potentially dozens of people being considered white-collar criminals.
It’s regarded as a crime against society because most large organizations or areas of people employ and/or support hundreds, sometimes thousands, and even millions of people. If they undergo extreme pressure as a result of criminal activity, many people are affected. If a crime leads to an organization’s ruin, this can have a profound effect on society. They can be incredibly difficult to track and discover since they are nonviolent crimes and don’t leave as much evidence as blue-collar crimes.
Although white-collar crimes have been known to lead to blue-collar crimes, this does not make a white-collar crime a blue-collar crime or vice versa. They would be two separate criminal charges.
Whether it’s nonviolent white-collar crime or violent blue-collar crime, you need an attorney who with experience handling everything that may be thrown at you. You may be innocent until proven guilty by law, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be treated as such. Don’t attempt to go in alone without a team of attorneys to help you prove your innocence.
