White Collar Statistics

The numbers for December 2008 have been released by TRAC (see here) and white collar prosecutions were down 17.3 % from five years previous. The jurisdictions with the largest number of prosecutions per capita were the Southern District of Mississippi, the Middle District of Louisiana, and the District of Montana. But again, these statistics need to be examined carefully. (see here and here), especially with regard to how the term "white collar crime" is defined.

The question now will be whether the new administration brings in higher numbers when it comes to white collar prosecutions and convictions.
