About this Assignment White collar crime is not a new phenomenon, and in fact, has a higher cost than most street crime. Despite this, many white collar and corporate crimes receive light, if any, punishments, even though these crimes have significant impacts on society. In this course, you learned about the different types of white collar and corporate crimes, organized crime, and occupational crime, theories to explain these crimes, and methods to investigate, prosecute, sentence, and punish white collar offenders. In a 2,500-3,500 word essay, please write a case study focusing on a white collar crime incident of your choice. Prompt This assignment allows you to examine a specific white collar crime incident in detail. You can choose to focus on an individual, a corporation, state-sponsored crime, or other type of white collar crime. Your case study should include information about the specific case, those involved (corporations, individuals, victims, etc.), how the case was handled in the legal system, and the long-term impacts of the case. You should demonstrate your understanding of white collar crime, how white collar crime is investigated and controlled, and explained. Formatting & Sources Please write your paper in the APA format. As part of your research, you may refer to the course material for supporting evidence, but you must also use three to five credible, outside sources and cite them using APA format as well. Please include a mix of both primary and secondary sources, with at least two sources from a scholarly peer-reviewed journal. If you use any Study.com lessons as sources, please also cite them in APA (including the lesson title and instructor’s name). Primary sources are first-hand accounts such as interviews, advertisements, speeches, company documents, statements, and press releases published by the company in question. Secondary sources come from peer-reviewed scholarly journals, such as the Journal of Management. You may use like JSTOR, Google Scholar, and Social Science Research Network to find articles from these journals. Secondary sources may also come from reputable websites with .gov, .edu, or .org in the domain. (Wikipedia is not a reputable source, though the sources listed in Wikipedia articles may be acceptable.)
