“White collar crimes” are distinguished from other types of crimes in that they typically involve some sort of fraud and do not involve violence. Depending on the nature of the crime, a white collar crime can involve breaking not only Wisconsin laws, but also federal laws, resulting in prosecution by both state and federal officials.
