Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the consequences of criminal justice attention and sanctions for white-collar defendants. Using media reports, prior research on white-collar offenders, autobiographies by white-collar offenders, and biographies about white-collar offenders, the effects identified include psychological effects, relationship effects, financial effects, identity effects, and effects stemming from the sanction. Attention is also given to the ways that offenders have coped with these effects. In general, white-collar offenders appear to be particularly resilient and able to overcome the negative effects. Family members also experience negative effects when white-collar offenders are processed through the justice system.

Keywords: white-collar incarceration, Club Fed, perp walks, sensitivity hypothesis
