Because the nature, scope, and execution of white collar crime has evolved so dramatically in recent years, state and federal courtrooms have struggled to keep up. In fact, sentencing guidelines are often thrown out altogether by judges who believe them to be too archaic or too severe.
Nevertheless, even the lighter sentences being handed down often exceed the average federal penalties for violent crimes. Sentencing for white collar crimes is more varied than in any other area of criminal law.
Since white collar crimes are predicated upon secrecy and deceit, their prosecution often involves complex data trails and the testimony of expert witnesses. When you add these complexities to the sentencing challenges noted above, it's no wonder that both the defense and prosecution of white collar crimes is so technically demanding.
