White Collar Crime
In January 2006, Mr. Villalobos created the White Collar Crimes Unit. A white collar crime has been defined as "a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation." (Edwin, Sutherland). The focus of this Unit is to prosecute criminals who abuse their power and take advantage of the people's trust.
Since the implementation of the White Collar Crimes Unit, numerous cases have been investigated resulting in over $4 million dollars in total restitution. The Unit continues to investigate cases of bribery theft, theft by public servant, insurance fraud, misapplication of fiduciary property, and tampering with government records, among others.
The Unit is composed of an attorney, a paralegal, and an investigator; all of whom have special training and experience for the job.
