White-collar crime prosecutions hit lowest level in 33 years

The US Justice Department is prosecuting fewer white-collar criminals now than at any time since records back more than 30 years ago, a new report says. The 5,702 white-collar prosecutions recorded last year are expected to fall to 5,175 this year if current levels of prosecutions persist, says a study from Syracuse University. In 1986, there were 7,843 white-collar prosecutions.
