Tennessee may not be the first state that comes to mind when people think of white collar crimes. Yet, it happens here nonetheless. Over the years, social scientists and journalists have studied white collar offenses all across the United States to better understand why it happens at all. Their findings have been interesting.

After all, it is often stories spotlighting notably violent crimes that garner high-profile press coverage in national media outlets. The white collar criminal sphere lacks similar pulse and drama.
