What Are the Penalties for White Collar Crimes?
While some white collar crimes can be a first-degree misdemeanor, far more of these crimes will be charged as felonies, which carry more serious penalties. Bear in mind that these are just the penalties in Ohio for white collar crime convictions; the sentencing from federal courts will usually be much harsher.
Possible penalties for being convicted of a white collar crime can include:
- For a 1st degree misdemeanor: Up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine
- For a felony: Up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine (for a 5th degree felony) to up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine (for a 1st degree felony)
