Bail Denied to Accused in a White Collar Case

A key difference between white collar cases and many of the cases involving alleged street crimes is the treatment of the accused pre-trial.  Where an accused in a street crime case may be denied bail, it is truly rare that an individual accused of a white collar offense has bail issues. 

It is thus surprising to read at Yahoo News (AP) here that a judge denied bail to an ex-KPMG executive.  Fearing that the accused would flee as he was facing a possible long prison term, the court ordered this individual held.
