White Collar Crime Prosecutions Down?

TRAC Reporting out of Syracuse University is saying that:

"[t]imely criminal enforcement data from the Justice Department document that in July 2006, U.S. federal white collar crime prosecutions reached their lowest number (498) in the last five years. In fact, not since May 2000 (when there were 446 prosecutions) has the number been lower." (see here)

But as previously reported here, here, and here, these numbers are suspect because the definition used to determine what constitutes white collar crime is not consistent.

(esp) (with disclosure that she is a Syracuse grad).
