This book provides corrections professionals and criminal justice students with a framework for understanding the white-collar offender as well as to help guide and assist those responsible for overseeing the incarceration of white-collar offenders. Four themes emerge as the basis for this book. The first is how massive white-collar crime is in its consequences and how our political system tends to afford opportunities to some white-collar offenders that are not afforded to street criminals. Second, how different supervision strategies are needed in order to ensure the efficiency and safety of institutional routines. Third, the author examines the imprisonment of white-collar offenders and what effects this has on this type of offender. Fourth, the author visits upon why sanctions to white-collar offenders should be proportionate to sanctions given to street offenders who committed similar offenses, but he also focuses on how the justice system can do a better job of meeting the needs of individual victims and the community by finding ways to restore the community rather than simply looking for ways to harm offenders. The book is intended for criminal justice professionals, academics, and researchers who want to better understand the role of the criminal justice system in punishing all types of offenders. It is also intended for use in criminal justice, corrections, sociology, and white-collar courses exploring the punishment of elite offenders. Through promoting understanding about this aspect of the response to white-collar misconduct, it is hoped that this book will help improve the whole justice system’s response to these offenses.
