The term white collar crime should be dropped from our vocabulary. A crime is a crime!
When a man robs a liquor store with a gun to pay the rent, feed his family or feed a drug habit there is a chance for rehabilitation - need and desperation drove him.
But when someone runs a Ponzi scheme, violates the securities law to defraud investors, or steals your identity, the motivation is pure greed. You cannot grow a conscience, but you can fake it for the parole board.
