White Collar Crime

A white collar crime also known as a federal crime is a criminal offense that is made or deemed illegal by United States Federal law. In a federal case it is not the states attorney that prosecutes the defendant but rather the U.S. Attorney. All white collar cases are typically investigated by a federal agency like the FBI or DEA. When you are dealing with a criminal charge by the state, the defendant is typically dealing with a police officer or detective during questioning; in a federal case the defendant is contacted by a federal agent for questioning.
