Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
I have read quiet a few white-collar crime cases and this is the first where the defendant used the excuse that love made them commit the crime, interesting! What’s more interesting is she stole the funds from the law firm she worked for. Wow, imagine working everyday for years knowing and hearing about people being charged with crimes and going to prison and you are committing a crime just like them knowing the high possibility that you could/are going to get caught and not stopping. Some people may think that it’s stupid, but many medical professionals would say it sounds like an addiction. What do you think? A more important question I like to ask, could you be someone committing a white-collar crime and do you need help before you end up in prison?
Today’s CrimeDivas, Melissa Wright, 39, of Greenfield, Mass was convicted of embezzling over $450,000. The charges: check forgery, passing false checks and larceny were all filed against her by attorney Mark Berson whom she worked for as his . . . bookkeeper. As I have mentioned many times these positions: accountants, bookkeepers and others where people are handling money directly are notorious for white-collar criminal activities.
According to records, Ms. Wright’s attorney stated that she was motivated by love for her boyfriend, using the money to buy toys for his children and bail out his failing business, but the prosecutor stated it was greed because she spent money on vacations, meal, and entertainment.
In reading this case, what surprised me was how quickly the court system convicted her on a Friday and was sentencing the following Monday. Unfortunate for Ms. Wright, her ‘s is a state case. As I have noted states have harsher sentencing for white-collar crimes than the federal.
