White collar crime is used to describe the crimes that mostly occur in the corporate or government environment. Non-violent in nature, and usually judged differently in courts. The accused person is not involved in any physical violence, and therefore while determining the sentence for such crimes the courts are less likely to put white collar criminals under the same classification as those that have committed acts of violence. On the other hand, white collar crimes account for $200 billion in loss each year, a number far higher than that of more common crimes like burglary or theft.
