Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
In the heart of the financial district in New York City, a bank executive succumbed to the temptation of greed. The quote above is befitting of today’s Crime Diva, Karen R. Febles, 47.
Just days ago, federal court officers escorted Ms. Febles in handcuffs and shackles on her ankles, as if she was a dangerous criminal, into the courtroom of U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Aelow to be formally charged with federal bank fraud. Ms. Febles allegedly skimmed $1.8 million from a retired executive account. To read the article: http://www.CrimeDivas.com.
Ms. Febles definitely fit the profile of a crime divas: A professional female, used her position to commit a ‘secret crime’, a large sum of money involved, and she has hurt others. Was greed at the heart of it all? Ms. Febles earned $93,000 yearly, which is by no means something to sneeze at. What led her to cross the line is unknown? Is there something defected in crime divas characters, is it a learned behavior, is there something personal and deeper that is driving them to these acts in which money is really just a by-product, or are there other possible reasons for making these unfortunate bad decisions?
The article states that for at least 11 years Ms. Febles had been the victim’s executive assistant and oversaw all of his personal and business finances. It is unclear if the crime went back that far.
Ms. Febles, however, did what most Crime Divas do with money, buy expensive homes, cars, and go on expensive luxury vacations. And like most white-collar crimes there are nasty paper trails that will show the ugly stories of greed.
As I read this article it is apparent that the court system is starting to view white-collar crimes in a more serious light; not only are they dragging these once graceful professionals into the courtroom in handcuffs and shackles, disallowing bond, but sentencing them to ‘hard time’ on or above the time given to murderers.
