  • Also called white-collar crime, the term was originally coined by Edwin Sutherland to denote a crime committed by a person of high social status during the course of his or her employment. It refers to a type of corporate crime, such as fraud, insider trading, embezzlement, and computer crime. White-collar crime stands in contrast to street crime in that it is usually, but not necessarily, nonviolent. Suite crimes may also include offenses such as selling dangerous products to consumers and dumping toxic chemicals into the environment.
