Crimes of the Middle Classes: White-collar Offenders in the Federal Courts
David Weisburd, Walter E Meyer Professor of Law and Criminal Justice David Weisburd, Stanton Wheeler, Elin Waring, Nancy Bode
Yale University Press, 1991 - Law - 211 pages
In this major study of convicted white-collar offenders in America, Weisburd, Wheeler, Waring, and Bode show that, contrary to public assumption, the majority of white-collar criminals are not wealthy but come from the middle classes and that judges are not more lenient with these offenders but often punish them more harshly than less socially privileged criminals.
